Olive Street Residence

Gail Barry, landscape architect

This large property started as an overgrown, dark and difficult to maintain problem. Land Mark Design worked with the family to open up the spaces into beautiful entertainment areas, with arbors, terrace, steps, seat walls, and raised garden beds in the rear.  A new driveway with parking areas was added.  Some existing trees were removed, or moved and new ones planted along with shrubs, ground covers, grasses and perennials.  The walls and paving complement the architecture of the house.  The extensive arbors create covered spaces for relaxing in the shade of the grape and wisteria vines.
