OLD SOUTH GARDEN
Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture
DUO Building Ltd.
An outdated and problematic backyard required re-thinking and a major renovation to update elements and resolve new programme requirements for a young and active family. Collaboration with the builder and interior designer resulted in a pavilion housing an exercise room, washroom and storage area connected to the house by a covered dining and entertainment space. Upgrades to the existing pool area include a fireplace, spa, seatwalls and additional space for family and entertaining. The classic landscape design, with a subtle green emphasis that incorporates ornamental pear, dogwood and redbud, yew and spirea, and liriope and pachysandra, establishes a lush garden with a sophisticated simplicity.
