Residential Gardens

This garden is just one of many private residential gardens designed by Harrison Design. We begin each project by listening carefully to our clients. We work with each site and its surroundings to create outdoor living spaces that suit their location, are in harmony with the natural environment and respond to the dreams of the owner. This garden knits together a series of small patio spaces leading to the front entry. The combination of dark green Otto Luyken laurels and the beautiful custom wrought iron rail provide a border between the street and the private residence within. The fragrance of lavender anchors the new entry plinths while the Boston ivy puts on a showy fall display of color in front of the exterior wall. Underplantings of unusual orange grasses, Sedum 'Autumn Joy' and Coral Bells add a fitting complement to the strong architectural forms.
