All About

The Lockes chose landscape architect Bob Hursthouse's vision for their property, transforming their giant putting green of a yard into a series of outdoor living spaces where grownups can kick back and relax. Well-chosen plantings like blackhaw viburnum trees and a Japanese maple help define the spaces, including a mini-garden for Neil's beloved hammock.
