Plan Description

The architecture of the brick Federal house might remind you of a trip to Colonial Williamsburg, and so too does the formality and grandeur of the landscape design. The key to the success and beauty of this design is its simplicity and symmetry, reflecting the symmetrical and repetitive lines of the house. If you fold the plan in half, it is identical on both sides with the exception of the driveway. The symmetry is carried out in two ways. One is by mirror-imaging from left to right note the placement of the large shade trees on either side of the house, the repetition of the foundation plants and the border plants, and the symmetrical paved area in front of the entry, flanked by two circular lawn areas. In the second way, the lines of symmetry go from the front of the landscape to the back note the repetition of the same trees on either side of the two-foot-high wall, the use of brick in the wall to match the brick of the home, and the repetition of stone piers on each end of the wall. These, in turn, exactly line up with the stone piers at both sides of the entry, creating a feeling of a courtyard in the circular driveway. The plants used in this design provide a graceful setting that gives the home a sense of performance. Here and there, flowers, berries and fall foliage provide spots of seasonal color, but the overall feeling is one of quiet, cool greenery. The elegance of this design matches the elegance of the house, reflecting well upon the good taste of the owners. Also shown here is home plan HWEPL00516.
