A Renaissance Garden in San Quirico D’orcia

Willow Point Residence

The property is set on a peninsula jutting out into Lake Waramaug in northeastern Connecticut. The owners have wonderful water views in every direction. The landscape design emphasizes the element of surprise. The entrance drive and walkway is planted with native trees and meadow shrubs, grasses and perennials to enclose the spaces and define the entrance. In contrast, on the lake side of the house the design was kept minimal with lawn and shade trees framing spectacular views.
