Home & Garden Landscapes waterfront landscaping projects create lush lakeside vistas for our clients, providing a residential sanctuary with stunning views. Browse through examples of some of our work in the waterfront landscape portfolio below.
Lake House Installation
Lake Hyco, North Carolina
This installation was done at a small lake in north-central North Carolina near the Virginia border. The owner wanted a tropical feel to his property. Plants included in this Zone 7 landscape include Cabbage Palmetto, Pindo Palm, Windmill Palm, Yucca rostrata and Yucca faxon. Since Zone 7 is marginal for some of these plants, winter protection is provided for 2 months of the year.
Lake Gaston, North Carolina-Virginia
This lakefront home, straddling the North Carolina and Virigina border, incorporated cold-hardy desert plants and cold-hardy palms. Plants used in this landscape include Cabbage Palm, Windmill Palm, Sabal Minor, Yucca Faxon, Yucca Rostrata and Prickly Pear Cactus. This is Zone 7, but being on a large lake, the climate is moderated therefore allowing us to incorporate Zone 8 plant material.
Efland, North Carolina
This lakeside home posed a unique landscaping challenge due to its architecture. With a European-inspired design, this home required an unusual palette of plant material including mature specimen Blue Atlas Cedars, Bald Cypress, Globosa Blue Spruce, as well Princeton American Elm and Sugar Maples. This is an on-going project the owner adds to each year.
