Project Progress

I thought I'd share some progress photos of a new home and landscape we have under construction.  This home and landscape was designed completely in-house at Bonin Architects.  The house itself has been under construction for about a year and the landscape construction started about three weeks ago.
Staked Goshen Stone steps flanked by boulders.

Concealed behind this fieldstone wall is a large dry well which is used to infiltrate stormwater collected from the roof and membrane decks by the gutter system.

Tiered retaining walls and steps will eventually meet a stair that descends from the porch.  As this house is relatively tall and narrow, the tiered walls do a great job of anchoring it to the site.
