The owners of this Cape Cod style home wanted a landscape design that would complement the traditional architecture of the house, incorporate color, and have a somewhat modern Asian feel. The client works out of his home and desired several outdoor spaces to work from while being surrounded by beauty, both visual, sonic, and scent. To that end, several dramatic water features were created in deck and court yard areas in the front and back yards. The owner also wanted to utilize a number of antique windows and doors in some unique manner. The pergola at the rear of the knot garden is the result of this challenge. It also serves to screen all the HVAC, pond, and pool equipment.
