Beautiful, Lush Meadow

Bright greens and pinks fill the meadow's landscape with beauty and natural color.

Beautiful Meadow With Lush, Green Grass

Bright green grasses and purple perennials encircle a well-maintained lawn with two Adirondack chairs for lounging and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

Meadow in the Morning Hours

The early morning light peeks through the trees and bushes, while a light fog drifts over the landscape.

Maintained Lawn With Perennials, Shrubs and Trees

The landscape goes as far as the eye can see. A well-maintained lawn is circled by lush perennials, shrubs and trees, and a pair of Adirondack chairs offer a place to take in the scenery.

Serene Outdoor Sitting Area

A pair of Adirondack chairs on the beautiful green lawn offer a pleasant place to sit and rest as the sun rises and sets.

Beautiful, Stylized Meadow

The grounds around this 1724 Abiah Taylor House adjoin Taylor Run and the Stroud Preserve. As always, the masses of very specific herbaceous perennials were utilized. Closer to the home, insincere boxwoods were eliminated and a less-suburban, more authentic appearance devised. The goal was to orchestrate a more gardenesque experience, while planting into the larger landscape presented by the preserve.

Pink Perennials

Pretty pink perennials add a splash of color to the lush, green landscape.
