A new Japanese-inspired home on a marsh island, dominated by mature Oak & Hickory trees, called for terracing, stonework and planting design to integrate the architecture and landscape. Stone steps lead through terraces flanked by mature trees, and underplanted with colorful azaleas, Japanese Maples, dwarf conifers and herbaceous plantings. Native shrubs mark the edge of sensitive conservation area.
