Willms, DL

Site

This newly constructed home was positioned above the Ocean-side homes to view Belcarra

Intention

To achieve a low-maintenance landscape to compliment the gorgeous architectural materials used on the exterior of the home using warm colours of oranges, reds and yellows.

Solution

There are three main rooms to this landscape. The first area is to the left of the driveway. This space is situated 4 feet above the driveway elevation making it a difficult area to mow. We planted shade-loving, easy-care plant materials such as: Rhododendrons, Camellias, Aucuba, Hydrangeas, Ferns and Japanese Maples in the entire area. The second room is the front entrance. Sweetly fragranced Himalayan Sweetbox line each side of the walkway leading to the front door. A rock bubbler for subtle sound. Dwarf Boxwoods line the driveway edges and perennials such as: Orange Sedge, Fanfare Blanket Flower, Emberglow, Lucifer and George Davidson Crocosmia for colour. A Hick's Yew Hedge lines the walk to the water-side pool deck to add some green between the coloured stamped concrete walk and the concrete walls; but careful not to cover the beautiful stone covered pillars. The third room is on the water side. Mainly lawn with two planting beds that each serve a purpose. One planting bed brilliantly camouflages the septic bed lids and the second is Japanese Holly and Training Cinquefoil planted into the raised concrete planter to provide cover to the expansive amount of concrete seen all year long from the roadside.
