• Extensive restoration of meadow, sprinkled with a colorful mix of native wildflowers; meadow edges ease into surrounding oak woodland creating a seasonal and textural ecotone.
• Designed to draw wildlife into the landscape through natural means: incorporating a bat box, future raptor perch, and a stone water feature that recirculates silently, maintains fresh, non-chemically-treated water, and includes a shallow basin to accommodate birds.
• Meandering path along perimeter of meadow accommodates maintenance access and allows for strolls through the garden, angling the experience to several distinct, lovely views.
• Single-story residential building houses a business, parking court (future redesign), and pedestrian entry court that accommodates employees’ and delivery comings and goings. Larger courtyard serves as outdoor break, lunch, and meeting area. Deck off of office captures meadow views.
