House Crush—Again

Highlands Falls house
Charming gates lead to the front entry.

Wouldn’t you just love to come home here!  The transformation was amazing—from Swiss Chalet look-a-like to Highlands charmer—welcome.  How would you like to drive on asphalt all the way to the front door? That was the how we first saw the house—no garden at all. The trick was to remove all of the asphalt after the house was complete and plant a garden of full grown plants in the Fall—the next Spring it looked like two years growth—Instant Garden.  I just love this! I think I am going to use this garden as an inspiration for the new Highlands house. Wish me luck—so much to do.

This circular walk lead to the entry—topiary was Cleveland at Boxwoods idea.
