We had an incredibly busy summer this year here at Joel Loblaw Inc. Here are a couple of our projects that will soon make it on our website that we are really proud of.
Gordon Residence – The client wanted a quiet outdoor retreat that includes a swim spa. No problem! The sunken backyard allowed us to add a modern deck with a post and beam arbour for lounging. The rest of the yard was split into a clean grass quad and a nook for a swim spa wrapped with wood screens and yew hedge for privacy. The planting consists of Miscanthus grasses as well as Feather Reed to soften the edges of design elements. Overall the client’s got everything she needs for a staycation!
Wise Residence – This one turned out to be a perfect marriage between landscape and architecture of the house. The low corten walls break up the space into lounging and dining. The new deck projects into the backyard and gently steps down into the clean lawn and planting at the back. The clean modern geometries organize and expand the outdoor space making the yard bigger than it used to be. Can’t wait to see it transform as the perimeter planting grows in and the corten gets its patina to give the space a pop of rustic orange colour.
