This project nestled along the headwaters of Lake Blue Ridge. The owners wanted to expand their lake living environment to enjoy all seasons and improve access for friends and family. The steep slopes presented a challenge so Garden Architects handled the transition with a series of fieldstone steps and slate chip ramps supported by boulder walls. Closer to the home a wonderful fire pit setting capitalizes on the best lake views. A native plant palette blends the setting with the wooded environment and keeps maintenance requirements low.
