Private Oasis in Berwyn

One of the many things I love about my work is the variety of spaces I am given to work with. For this family in Berwyn, there was an existing courtyard which the clients wanted to reimagine to be more useful for their family of 5. (See "Before" picture below.) After exploring multiple concepts, we developed a master plan, complete with hot tub, pergola, fountain, seating and dining areas and a built-in grill. (See "3-D Rendering" picture below.) My clients now have an outdoor entertainment space they love! (See picture above.)

Meadows for Monarchs

Meadows are one of our natural habitats that have been greatly reduced in our ecosystem. They provide habitat for many butterflies, including the monarch, as well as ground nesting birds and many mammals. They are also a thing of beauty! Longwood Gardens (Kennett Square, PA) opened a new 86-acre meadow garden to the public this summer, with 3 miles of walking trails, 4 learning pavilions, and the historic Webb Farmhouse and Galleries. And Mt Cuba Center (Hockessin, DE) has been maintaining one for years. Here's a photo of a monarch right after it emerged, shot at Mt Cuba Center by Dave Korbonits, their meadow horticulturist.

Meadows can be part of your home's gardens too. Once established, they are low maintenance, requiring only one mowing per year.
