Salem Townhouse Traditional Landscape, Boston

In the heart of the McIntyre Historic District, a Registered National Historic Landmark of Salem, you'll find an extraordinary array of fine residential period homes. Hidden behind many of these homes are lovely private garden spaces.

The recreation of this space began with the removal of a large wooden deck and staircase. In doing so, we visually extended and opened up the yard for an opportunity to create three distinct garden rooms. A graceful fieldstone and bluestone staircase leads you from the home onto a bluestone terrace large enough for entertaining. Two additional garden spaces provide intimate and quiet seating areas integrated in the herbaceous borders and plantings.

The brick for this project is an antique brick that is a reclaimed material from old city streets and sidewalks. The color and size will vary based upon which part of the country it is reclaimed from.
