The project site originally consisted of an assortment of disparate and overgrown planting areas, many of which were heavily shaded by adjacent wooded areas. While the selected plant materials had to be able to tolerate heavy shade for large portions of the day, the client did not want the informal, overgrown look of most shade gardens. Thus, we took a more sculptural, refined approach to the plantings, favoring groupings of Hostas, ferns, and shade-tolerant Diervilla and Clethra. A simple but generously sized Bluestone patio provides space for both relaxation and social gatherings.
