JMMDS created a new drive court, entry stairs, and herb terrace to complement a new addition to an old New Hampshire farmhouse. We reoriented the axis of the vegetable garden toward a view and created a “turning point” for a handsome pot whose lines mimic the mountain peak beyond. A retaining wall along the back of the new addition makes space for a bocce court and lawn. All stonework created with Bethel White granite from Bethel, Vermont.
Seat-height granite walls provide the framework for an easy transition from driveway to front door.
Granite retaining walls contain raised perennial garden beds, bursting with multi-season color and texture.
A large granite millstone is repurposed as a water feature; a focal point in the garden.
Shade gardens that feature a variety of foliage texture and color are a vibrant and lively contrast against the white farmhouse building.
Pockets of planting break up the tiered retaining walls and stairs, softening the rocky landscape.
A vibrant sculptural pot set atop a granite landing brings a bit of whimsy into the garden.
