Entirely Edible


A low maintenance, edible landscape focusing on functionality for a young, busy family was created for this newly constructed residence.

Clean lines and formal planting beds were used to compliment this elegant home.  A variety of hedges, edible trees, perennials and masses of groundcovers create a vibrant, multi dimensional landscape. This tasteful design incorporates drip irrigation, minimizing water loss by efficiently delivering water directly into the soil surrounding the root systems.

A stepping stone path from the front to rear of the home creates a gateway to a more private, intimate backyard.  Textural woodland plants of varying heights and colors will naturally spread as they thrive in this shady part of the property.  Carried into the backyard, the stepping stones weave around raised planting beds filled with perennial and annual edible fruits, vegetables and herbs, taking inspiration from earths the biospheres.

In the backyard space, vines weave through obelisks and climb a stylish arbor. A tasteful water feature engages the senses while the eye is drawn to a structural peach tree; the center piece of this magical garden.
