Friendly Neighborhood Landscape

The client wanted a more welcoming and engaging entry sequence that offered better connections to the planting areas in the front yard, and a clear view of the front door from the entry point below. We replaced the winding wooden stair with a concrete one that integrates with a series of terraces for gardening, lawn games, seating and sculpture. Materials and plantings include, colored sand finish concrete, bluestone slab wall caps, bluestone flagstone at the lower landing, custom steel handrails, gates and pet fencing, and two Mountain Ash trees (Sorbus Aucuparia) that the client remembers fondly from growing up in eastern Europe.

How can an older home project keep the character, yet modernize it to enhance efficiency and ease? That was the question presented to Rainbow Valley. The Rainbow Valley staff was respectful in keeping special memories and supporting the integrity of the structure and landscape. Their knowledge & skill gave it a professional touch. The project was customer friendly, honoring choices, yet provided helpful solutions. The end result maximized efficiencies, space, and style. Their project coordination was timely and financially accurate, completing a beautiful finished product.
