Working in collaboration with the architect, Verdant Enterprises sited structures and oversaw all other outdoor improvements with deference to a beautiful grove of live oaks overlooking the Colleton River.
Verdant was responsible for developing concepts, budgets, and architectural review documents for all elements outside the buildings including alternate pool studies and a walled entry garden. Special features included a small Charleston-style courtyard with a sculpture and pool. The gardens feature traditional Southern horticulture within a backdrop of hardy, native plantings.
A second phase focused on the design of a custom water feature for the guest house garden. This entailed full design and project management services and coordination of an arborist, an aquatic consultant, a landscape contractor, and other trades people. The resulting garden acts as a tranquil, alluring outdoor room.
