A steep hill presented engineering and drainage challenges at this now picturesque Connecticut property. Much of the landscape design was done by hand as machines weren’t able to access the site. Retaining walls made of round natural fieldstone, the removal of 2,000 cubic yards of earth, the addition of a custom drainage system, and an array of greenery were part of the project.
A custom pool and spa was installed along with all the pool decking and a grilling station. A pergola with LED lighting covers the dining area, next to a remote controlled gas fire pit. In front, a brand new driveway was constructed using antique Belgian block curbing. Walkways, a front stoop and inset mailbox are all part of the landscape masonry design.
