Hartland, Vermont

This rural Vermont garden consists of a sequence of curvilinear landscape features that weave through a series of orthogonally-placed architectural elements. As in all SBLA projects, careful attention was given to the preservation of the existing vegetation, including a spectacular Red Oak (Quercus rubra) that played a pivotal role in the location for an elliptical swimming pool.  Hand-laid stone walls, terraces, and an expressive Iron trellis set up a spatial framework for the established site with a new drainage infrastructure system, a swale representing an ancient stream bed was created to collect the overabundance of surface water the site receives.
