Farmhouse Restoration -
Located in Upper Bucks County, this
farm estate features gardens designed
in keeping with the restoration of a
European style house and guest cottage.
Reclaimed hardscaping materials were used to carry the age and character of the home into the landscape and to create the appearance that time had worn away the newness of the garden and to reinforce the feeling of an old farm. A planting scheme of deer and walnut tree resistant material was carefully selected to define the gardens and to provide color and interest throughout the year. Lighting adds another dimension by highlighting the sculptural quality of the trees and adding safe passage along the paths and steps. In addition to the gardens around the house, a vegetable garden and orchard were added as well color interest along the stream and woodland.
