Half acre by the sea

This half acre property on a quiet lane near the bay had sustained hurricane damage when new owners purchased it. Several trees were removed creating an essentially open lot with bisecting fences. A deep shade of blue paint for accent and distinctive foundation plantings modernized the space. Rows of Miscanthus grass provide light airy movement throughout the seasons and the evergreen Mugo pine, Hinoki cypress and Atlas cedar add depth to the front of the house. In time Wisteria will climb the columns and drape the roof with cascading lavender blossoms.
