Our clients had recently constructed a modern farmhouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin when they contacted us. The property was large with an existing barn that they also refurbished for future canning of vegetables. They hired us to produce a landscape master plan that encompassed both the home and barn as well as the extensive driveway that connected the two structures. Our conceptual landscape plans were hand drawn and ink rendered for presentation to the client. The front yard portion of the design features a full range bluestone front walk with stone cobble edge, with a guest drop off area at the edge of the driveway.
The backyard design features a full range bluestone patio with stone cobble edge. Per our client's request, the new stone patio includes areas for lounging, grilling and dining along with a custom stone fire pit. New plantings around the foundation of the home and the paved areas as well as low voltage landscape lighting round out the balance of the design around the home.
For the barn area, we worked with the existing gravel path and stone retaining walls. Off one corner of the barn, a rain garden was created around a main drainage catch basin. Between the retaining walls, a cutting garden was designed and consists of plants friendly to butterflies and bees.
