This family had just moved back to the states from Paris and wanted their new home in Hingham, MA to be an evocative blend of France and Nantucket. The front was to stay low to preserve views of the harbor, yet full of color and a touch of beach grass.
In spring the riot of color is contained within the granite stone walls, while the backdrop stays a simple mix of greens and burgundy foliage
Rounding the corner toward the back yard is a dramatic hedge of Miscanthus gracilimus and PG Hydrangea, with a touch of Calamagrostis to caress your arm as you pass through the gate to the swimming pool.
The pool area is a subtle blue color scheme, with a lush perennial border along the back of the property. Hydrangea Tardiva and a magnificent crabapple tree provide the basic structure, with billowing waves of Sedum, Anemone and coreopsis flowing at their feet.
