About 3 weeks ago I began working with amazing acreage. The clients from out-of-state, could have afforded new fancy. But it wasn't for 'her'. She went beyond the patience of her family & realtor. Why? She had to have her home in the proper setting. After renovating kitchen & other spaces, she's ready for the garden. Their acres are stunning. My job is to frame the views, and they are 360 !

Lovely step detail:

.
Their home faces one of their lakes from a perfect distance, and, with a more perfect slope.
.
At present there is no relationship between house & lake. None. How can this be?
.
Oh my the delight, connecting house to lake with stone steps, concave & convex.
.
Client's concave/convex stone steps won't be quite so formal, as above, more rustic, no mortar.
.
Of course grading needed, and our stone mason to perfectly 'set' each stone. Have worked with Javier for years, I think of him as a garden 'jeweler' !
.
Alas, clients are building a carriage house, barn, paddock, pool, summer house, potager ahead of their concave/convex steps. Excited about their other projects, but these steps make my heart sing.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

Open, wooded, lakes, slight slopes, mature, oh my this acreage. Poor Javier, he knows how excited I get about focal points of stone and what Muse sees. Then, Javier makes my thoughts better. His Muse speaks too.
