European Style Landscape

Deborah Silver and Co.

This European style landscape features a concrete exposed aggregate driveway laid out perpendicular to, and centered on the front door of the house. That formal and symmetrical drive culminates in a drive court.  The concrete aggregate was poured in the areas needed to turn into or out of the garages. The corners are compacted decomposed granite. A center medallion is natural stone, bordered by poured and stained concrete. London Planes were planted slightly inside the leading edge of the drive court pillars. A simple row of boxwood across the front is complemented by six French made orangery boxes planted with mugho pines on standard and juniper topiaries, respectively. The rear yard landscape embraces a formal pool, leaving the view open to the lake.
