Terraced Landscape in Vermont
This terraced landscape in Vermont flows from a high perch on a contemporary home’s second story viewing deck through a grassy play space with a fire pit terrace, past mown fields to a swimming pond with “Lake House" and on through a wet meadow to a beaver pond beyond. In between lie sweeping perennial and ornamental grass gardens, a circular vegetable garden, and blueberry bushes and a fruit orchard. In the front yard, perennial borders soften a focal outdoor bread oven that occupies a stone terrace adjacent to a screened-in porch.
