Woodstock, New York
The construction of the landscape for this weekend house was phased over several years. Landscape features include a line of Sugar Maples defining the driveway, a juniper hedge screening the auto court, an orchard of crabapples, the planting of canopy trees to renew the park-like feeling of the entry lawn, a deer resistant perennial border, a wildflower meadow and a fenced cottage garden.
The Cottage Garden fence allows a full range of lush perennials to be featured beyond the reach of deer. An egg-shaped lawn provides a central gathering space and the garden terraces down with the topography, orienting toward the distant view. Planting beds radiate out from the lawn in contrasting bands of color that include a Daylily bank, a mixed perennial border, a band of Lily Turf, a white border and a sunny border. A system of stone paths and stairs provide a variety of options for experiencing the garden.
