Last fall we landscaped this house in Ridgefield, CT.  After 20 plus years in business, this has been one of my favorite projects to date for many different reasons. First, the homeowners were really excited about having a nice garden.  Second, the house as well as the landscape was getting a facelift so we were able to co-ordinate flowers colors with the painter.  Third, this historic house is located in downtown Ridgefield.  Who doesn’t like landscaping historic houses in downtown Ridgefield?  Fourth, because the house is located just off the main drag, we get tons of compliments from people walking by as they make there way to and from Ridgefield’s commercial district. Taking compliments from the locals is great therapy and does wonders for my ego.  Fifth, the property was small so every line and curve of the planting beds seemed accentuated.  In fact, I could sense the overall feel of the space change with just a slight manipulation of each garden bed.  Getting the garden bed lines to feel right was fun yet challenging.  Finally, the owners were committed to a yearly planting of annuals.  Because of that, we will be able to really change the look of this garden every year with different color schemes and styles from English cottage to Victorian and beyond.  Maybe a garden with a tropical flare is in the future for this landscape.  Take a look below at some recent pictures.  I would love to know your thoughts?
