Classic Landscape

Deborah Silver and Co.

This mature landscape juxtaposes classical and formal garden elements with some unexpectedly contemporary gestures. A sculpted ground grass amphitheater more than twenty five years old visually organizes the lakeside landscape. A long terrace is reflected in a large mirror at one end. A collection of climbing roses more than twenty years old is spectacular in bloom in June. The formal boxwood parterre garden is meticulously pruned to preserve the spherical shape of the boxwood. The mainstay of the street side landscape is a pair of sculpted hornbeams that have grown to enormous size over the years. The drive court is original to house, built in the 1920’s.
