The landscaping for this detached home located at The Orchard development near the slopes of Craigleith is a prime example of how a comprehensive approach to landscaping can achieve a stunning transformation.

Peter Owen brought the full force of his skills to use when conceiving of this space for his clients - an amalgamation of built form and lush plantings, carefully planned out in advance with a prepared detailed landscape plan.

The result is a virtual oasis - a self contained space set within a subdivision context. The property is divided into a sequence of spaces, a seamless transition from one realm to another. The primary architectural element is an elevated deck connecting the 2nd floor porch to the backyard. Orientating it to take advantage of the ski hill views creates a dynamic, highly useable outdoor living space. From here, perched above, you gaze down to the swimming pool and gardens. A hot tub is nestled in a corner at the base of the stairs. The walkway forms the main axis, as it leads from the spa terrace down a series of steps to the swimming pool terrace - the eye terminated on a rustic trellis structure constructed of hefty douglas fir members. The work was expertly installed by The Landmark Group.
