The challenge with designing the landscaped acreage surrounding a new home is to create a setting that is inviting and intimate. These two characteristics for a successful landscape can be overlooked when dealing with a larger property. Spaces for entry and entertainment must utilize patterns and shapes in the surface, and features like trees and arbours to establish this design goal. The horizontal and vertical elements combine for the right design effects. Van de Poll Garden Design was hired during early construction stage to assist with the layout of all exterior areas. What results is a successful progression of arrival at the front entry, and a backyard full of well positioned features like swimming pool, hot tub, fireplace, outdoor kitchen and putting green.
