New Farmhouse -
Currently under construction, this New
Hope, Pennsylvania garden features a
new home located on a steep slope site.
Design elements include front access,
basement walkout garden, rear dining
terrace, and a ruin garden with a fireplace
and water feature.
 
Dear Garden Associates worked closely with the homeowner and builder to create gardens that reflect the homeowner’s taste and compliment the architecture of the home. Curving boulder walls were installed throughout the gardens to create a series of terraces, address grading issues, and protect large trees. Pathways and steps of large irregular flagstone provide access around the home and through various gardens of fragrant seasonal plantings. Path and tree lights extend the use of the gardens into the night, but do not overpower the night experience.
