For this Donald Grieb designed, mid-century home in Glendale, Wisconsin, our clients wanted to update the landscape while keeping it in character with the architecture of the home. We were hired to do a master plan for the entire property including all new hardscaping - new front walk, front sitting area and new back patio. Initially they wanted natural stone for all of the paved areas as drawn, but once we pre-costed the design it was determined that concrete would be the better choice for budget reasons.
The front portion of the design has an Asian-inspired flavor to it with the segmented walkway and the sitting area within stone mulch. The interesting angles of the home are carried into the landscape both front and back. For the new, expanded patio space, different outdoor rooms were created for lounging, dining and a fire pit. All new plantings around the perimeter of the home include long blooming perennials, ornamental grasses, evergreens and flowering shrubs. Low voltage landscape lighting completes the design. Scheduled for installation in early 2023 so check back for photos of the finished project@!
