Botanical Bayou

The design & construction of the summer house came together with the help of Arp Projects, while incorporating Bluestone flooring and Killcare random ashlar walling tying it in with the main house.

Meandering boardwalks and pebbled pathways by Focal Point Garden Design complement the native garden, linking the main house, pavilion, garden and putting green.

Water was a key element of the design, not only in dealing with the extremely wet site, meaning the summer house needed to be raised for flood regulations and plenty of drainage installed. But the dam-like pond and trickling waterway bring a feeling of serenity to the garden while attracting native birdlife also.
