When your bed and breakfast is also a popular event destination for weddings, anniversaries and corporate parties, it’s vital that the space looks great all the time. Although this space was originally designed 10 years ago, we continue to work closely with the client, directing their maintenance staff and gardeners.

Landscapes are living areas that change every week, and our goal is to maintain the original design intent, while allowing for business growth and evolution. For example, over time we’ve added a vegetable garden, a level tent pad and addressed storm damage. We continue to adjust the design as plants grow up and new spaces are available at ground-level. Our ongoing commitment to the property ensures consistency and grows the investment in the beautiful space — one of the reasons this B&B is such a popular wedding destination.

Bed and breakfasts have unique challenges for landscaping and design. The site needs to retain a residential, comfortable appeal, yet stand up to the rigors of increased foot traffic and heavy use. Plus, they need to look great, all year. Other considerations include ensuring buildings and grounds are ADA compliant, and having space available for events.

This property has several buildings, including cottages and a restaurant, so the design and features needed to promote safe movement between areas, while still creating private gardens for retreats, individual cottages or use as smaller, more intimate event spaces. The end result are beautiful paths between gardens, with plants and features to that provide privacy while effortlessly linking spaces.
