GLENCOE FRENCH CHATEAU - FORMAL POOL AND LANDSCAPE (14 PHOTOS)
We implemented formal design elements across the hardscape and softscape for a classic French theme. The plant massings are simple, symmetrical, and they serve to highlight the grand architecture of the house. The driveway compliments the brickwork on the facade of the house and the bluestone border delineates a formal motorcourt. For the rear yard, we continued the classic French inspired theme. Again, the plant massings are simple and formal - they serve to highlight the beautiful architecture of the house. The formal boxwood hedges provide definition and the crisp clean Arborvitae perimeter lends a solid green privacy wall around the entire rear yard. We designed and placed the swimming pool and pergola at a 45 degree angle to the house, to maximize the lawn space and to keep the main view of the house facade open/intact. The outdoor kitchen and firepit serve as excellent entertainment amenities.
