Cottage Appeal

W. Roxbury

When this home’s accomplished gardener approached Christie Dustman & Company to design his front yard garden, it was a much-appreciated compliment and a daunting task. Honored with Second Place in the Boston’s Garden Contest 2011, his gardens vibrated with eye-popping color inspired by the classic ‘over the top’ floral displays found adorning English cottages.

The front yard’s steep slope and front walkway needed to be replaced to allow for maximum floral displays and to incorporate nine handmade UK willow wattle enclosures (not your typical design requirement!).

The final plan included a formal nine-square layout set on three terraces that step down through the sloping front yard. A sitting spot was added inside the formal garden, fenced off from the street and front walkway, creating a restful escape. Carefully planned and executed stonework managed all elevation changes and added a country charm year around.

This garden is neighborhood treasure. Often walkers are found pausing in delight.
