Wellesley Hills Residence

IDDLA is thrilled to have helped our clients with the landscape for their new-build "forever home." We worked closely with the client, builder, architect and environmental engineer from schematic design through permitting and construction. During permitting, our team received unanimous approval by Wellesley's tough Design Review Board and Planning Board with special commendations on the landscape.

The landscape design for this corner lot maximizes the striking front entrance and creates a family-friendly side and garage entry. The private terrace in the back with built-in range and gas firepit makes the most of borrowed views into the adjoining woodland. A rose garden featuring a fruit tree espalier provides year-round interest. Thermal "true blue" bluestone paving and fieldstone walls and hardscaping contribute to the landscape's classic, modern aesthetic.
