RIVERSIDE GARDEN 2
Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture
Skinner Architects Inc.
Specific client requests to have no leaf-shedding deciduous trees around the pool and to create a sun worshipping oasis necessitated scale and interest to be furnished by shrubs, perennials and ornamental grasses. Large sweeping drifts of Juniper, Henry Hudson rose, Russian Sage, and a variety of grasses weave and intermingle across the sloped terrain. Their irregular arrangement affords a casual and natural elegance that is counter to the sleek architecture of the residence and pool terrace. The balanced landscape design that is both understated and dramatic unifies the site.
