Within minutes of downtown Boston, Olmsted Paradise is an estate designed with traditional styling and stately elegance, incorporating custom designed elements to add to the beauty and functionality of the unique space.

The landscape elements emulate cues from the Georgian style residence. The materials and construction echo its architecture of cast stone and brick. Granite cobblestone, bluestone accent banding and limestone field paving create the elegant and stylish outdoor living spaces throughout the estate.

The large formal entry courtyard with its beautiful natural stone accents and old-world style stone driveway welcome visitors to the home in grand fashion. The formal garden, with its pea stone pathways and raised cobblestone edging organize the garden beds in a symmetrical fashion. Architectural details from the residence inspired the simple, but elegant, garden fencing that performs double duty as the pool enclosure.

An expansive lawn area for entertaining and play is seamlessly integrated with the pool and garden spaces. Surrounding this idyllic enclave are large sweeps of colorful perennials, flowering shrubs, and majestic trees creating privacy, seasonal color, and endless enjoyment for our client.

A unique feature we specially designed for this project, were the gates on the opposite site of the pool. In line with the brick fire pit, these allow access to the beautiful garden beyond.

Responsible for all plantings and the hardscape, we worked in collaboration with the engineer on this project to develop a in-depth grading plan for the property. All detailing was meticulously chosen, from stone or brick color, grouting, field relationships, as well as coordination with the landscape contractor and decision makers to ensure a successful outcome.
