This property nestled in the rolling countryside of Racine County reflects the owners love for the Colorado landscape and entertaining. A sweeping irregular bluestone entryway greets guests and is anchored by a unique focal point. The client and designer chose a rustic syrup kettle as a focal point that is planted with seasonal color. A large terraced patio provides a generous amount of space for hosting guests. The patio sits elevated above the lower back yard with spectacular views of the prairie and is surrounded by colorful cascading plantings. Granite boulders, irregular bluestone and rustic cobbles were selected to complement the house. Plantings include groves of aspen trees and mass plantings of perennials anchored by ornamental trees and shrubs. Seasonal Services has been an integral part of the success of this project from the beginning design phase, through the installation and finally in the maintenance of the 5+ acre property.
