Ware Residence

Chapel Hill, NC

Project Statement
The landscape renovation for this European Style Country home began with the creation of a team of designers and a courtyard of specimen Japanese maple trees.

The landscape setting for this stately home was in need of an uplift of color and detail. The view to the home through the allee of Crape Myrtle trees was improved with selective pruning and the addition of flowering annuals. The auto court was enhanced with the planting of two mature Cutleaf Japanese Maple Trees. Color was added throughout with sweeping beds of annuals, shrubs with variegated foliage and flower, and multiple Flowering Fringe Trees.

The outdoor living space in the rear was enhanced with a stone terrace, an infinity edge pool, and colorful slope planting which all overlook the Governors Club Golf Course. The finished product is a beautiful setting that lives up to the standards of this estate home.
