Residential Projects

"Easy living", "low maintenance", "design with nature". These topics define an approach to residential design.

Adair Residence
Naturalistic development of a 16 acre home site in an historic and environmentally sensitive setting. The site includes the ruins of an old grist mill and an associated stone water chase. Because the site is rugged, much use was made of boardwalks and bridges in order to avoid disturbing the lay of the land. The house, yard and a deck overlook a whitewater shoal which is visible through the trees below . All site features were adapted to the natural site in order to minimize loss of trees and native vegetation. New plant materials were all native and included many flowering shrubs and trees such as rhododendron, azalea, dogwood and others. This project appeared in a feature article in Southern Living Magazine and in one of Southern Living's garden books.
