A large rural residential property

I have worked a lot with stone recently, including this landscape project near Kitchener- Waterloo. A cedar deck and outdoor hot tub enclosed was built along the back of the house, leading on to a stone patio. The stone work and decking were done by Ground Effects from Arthur, Ontario. The gardens consisted of colourful, medium height perennials which framed the view to the pond and property.

A steep slope down to a pond was altered by placing large landscape stone to form a ridge. On the bank between the large stones, I planted a rockery on the steepest side and a native Ontario meadow mix on the gentler slope. With this meadow mix, the forbes were planted as bare root plants and the grasses were seeded. The picture you see here shows the garden along the edge of the outdoor hot tub. Tall perennials and grasses were planted just outside the structure to be looked through. This garden has many angles and approaches and pathways leading in many directions.

The client did not want eaves troughs along the roof of the house, so the beds had to be structured to accommodate this. We placed a band of landscape fabric, covered with granite river stone to handle the rainfall runoff. We planted on both sides of the stone stream so that it will eventually be masked by foliage and flowers. This picture was taken before seeding and sodding.
