This Little Harbor residence was renovated with an eye towards creating functional, comfortable garden spaces with a loose organic style and just a bit of formality. The plantings are a varied mix of trees, shrubs and perennials with fruits and vegetables planted in edged beds for easy maintenance. Functional issues such as drainage through the property needed attention. We made sure that drainage from the sloped property above was directed around the house instead of into it, as was the existing condition. The resulting plan produces cozy landscape space amid a food producing garden minutes from downtown.
