Newton Centre Residence

A new addition to any building can often leave the landscape scarred and in need of attention.  The clients for this home in Newton saw this as an opportunity to refresh an aging landscape and bring the garden into a new phase of life.  JJLA worked with the client to create a series of outdoor spaces that could be used to entertain and play.   

A new heated bluestone arrival walk brings visitors through layers of new woodland garden plantings on the way to the front door.  The new addition is grounded to the site with a new bluestone terrace and privacy plantings that offer color and texture year-round.  The extension of the lawn area from the existing garden creates a space for children to run and play, while the replacement of an aging hemlock hedge with a new hedge planting allows for privacy from the road and becomes a natural buffer for children from the street.
