Site Planning / Landscape Design
GO Home’s award winning sustainable landscape preserves and expands on the existing healthy site ecology. Areas disturbed by construction become areas for circulation and exterior living spaces. Re-grading for stormwater management creates a shallow swale reseeded as a wildflower meadow. Native New England trees and shrubs planted along the driveway and property boundary increase the footprint and biodiversity of the existing edge habitat. Maine heirloom apple varieties, planted alongside the remnants of an old orchard, build on the cultural and working history of the site. Walking paths are mown through the field, creating opportunities for visitors to experience the fine-grain details of the larger landscape.
