Braehead Revisited, the sequel

I hope you enjoyed the tour of Braehead last week. You may be curious as to what’s next for this wonderful old place. The exterior is phase II.

I love doing small garden design for my clients, but as with everything else related to Braehead, the garden was anything but small!
The owners wisely sought the expert help of award-winning landscape designer, Betsy Sale. Betsy has already installed several thousand square feet of hardscape at Breahead, including a beautiful bluestone terrace, a cobbled parking area, a massive brick staircase and walkways to connect everything. Dozens of trees, shrubs and perennials have been planted and the original carriage path to the front of the house has been recreated.

My small contribution will be to furnish these beautiful outdoor rooms.  So far we have furnished the terrace…

…and added a beautiful bench to the front walkway, with the Traveler tree nearby.

In the coming months of spring, the plants will awaken. And so will Braehead, as work begins on phase II, the exterior of the structure.

Stay tuned!
