About the Front Yard:
Preserving the original character of the front façade was paramount to the design and build teams. While the front door was relocated to accommodate a larger foyer, window position remained unaltered. The addition of a stone path and lushly planted beds, defined by site-sourced boulders, lends permanence to the landscape design. "As a vacation home, we wanted to make sure our design was low maintenance and would mature beautifully without a lot of upkeep," says Desperate Landscapes host Jason Cameron. "I think we succeeded in respecting the neighborhood and adding to the curb appeal of a beautiful area."
