A commitment to proven design concepts of balance, symmetry, axial relationships and respect for the site can create a successful year-round landscape while providing interest and excitement for a young family. One of the beauties of this project was that we were able to create different spaces based upon the lighting. Created to serve multiple functions, each section (of the loggia) was able to evoke a different feeling.
A strong initial concept, a forward-thinking client and a sophisticated design team elevated the fit and finish to the sublime.
Janice Parker Landscape Design roots its practice in a three-tier model which focuses on connecting clients with their land in an inspiring way. The paradigm blends the homeowners’ needs with the architecture of a site and a chosen aesthetic. In doing so, Parker collaborates with nature and expresses a larger vision, which draws clients to spend time in the outdoor environments created for them.
Beyond the standing pool structure, Parker celebrated the original roots of the property and pushed back the existing trees to aid in privacy. Capturing major impact from seemingly small design elements is the gift of a thoughtful design process. A low stone wall, a subtle adjustment in elevation, or a unique plant, tile or paint color can combine to make a space sing. Parker inserted large hedgerows of limelight hydrangeas and numerous flowering plants, and strategically selected plants that would be in bloom during the warmer seasons for the family to appreciate while outdoors.
