The challenge of this project was a large house which lacked a sense of entry. Front door featured a lacklustre interlock stone porch; the stone was laid in a curve and didn’t work with the straight lines of the house. The entry porch was laid in black Indian stone to create impact and match the black entry door. It was then inserted into the existing interlock to further break up the commercial style interlock. At each end of the pathway a courtyard was created to give the front door more prominence. Wall stone was used to define the planting beds and introduce a level change, changing the scale of the house along with simple boxwood planting and white hydrangeas. The banding of the interlock stone in the driveway was used to break up the asphalt surface. It also runs across the planting beds to pull together the rest of the yard. Native columnar trees along the driveway anchor the planting area, working with the clean geometrical lines of the house.
