This property is a study in contrasts: a classic New England Colonial, with a strikingly contemporary addition. Odd Job Landscaping partnered with landscape architect Gregory Lombardi to create an outdoor oasis that perfectly marries the old and new. In the front, two styles of retaining walls – bluestone and ashlar granite – provide structure, separating the house from the drive and defining the borders of the property. An asymmetric, linear path of thermal top bluestone leads to the entrance, surrounded by massed plantings of spring bulbs, perennials, and shrubs. At the back, the home opens directly onto a large bluestone patio, accented with subtle bands of granite flagging. Perennial plantings surround the patio, featuring an array of white blooms accented by pops of vivid color.
