DORCHESTER COUNTRY ESTATE

LOCATION
Dorchester, Ontario

Classical landscape architecture embraces rustic charm and takes advantage of subtle grade changes to create unique and meaningful gardens and terraced spaces. Along the front sculpted landforms with naturalized plantings mask the traffic and noise from the busy bordering highway. Arcing dry-laid stone retaining walls manipulate the grade and shape an orchard and the Great Lawn also edged by native grass meadows. The muted lush green front gardens are discreet yet intricate and complement the architectural style of the house. The back gardens are in bold contrast with the pool area and lounge terrace graced with floriferous sun worshipping perennials and ornamental grasses offering an oasis of exotic splendour.
