Description: For this wooded private estate GCH worked closely with the family to create a design balancing both strong traditional and contemporary elements.  Emphasis was on creating a program that reflected the needs of the family and encompassed a wide range of activities from formal entertaining, to children’s play and wildlife appreciation.  The design features a meandering pathway arching around the estate, connecting formal garden space with pool, woodland fire pit, children’s play area, zen garden, circular driveway, and wildlife viewing nook.  Winterbourne Landscape worked as the landscape contractor for this project.
