A Modern Take On Landscaping

Westwood, MA

The renovation and modernization of the 1950s Westwood, MA ranch house and its surrounding landscape have not only transformed the physical space but have also fostered a stronger sense of family unity. The family now finds themselves drawn outdoors, where they can spend countless hours by their newly designed firepit and outdoor dining area, engaging in activities like grilling at their state-of-the-art grill island and hosting gatherings for friends.

One of the standout features of this renovation is the integration of innovative technologies, such as the Tesla solar roof. This not only enhances the sustainability of the home but also reflects a commitment to environmentally friendly living. Additionally, the inclusion of a heated driveway adds a touch of luxury and practicality, ensuring a snow-free and safe entry even during the winter months.

The design of the house and landscape is distinctly contemporary, characterized by a modular and linear aesthetic. The landscape architectural design has skillfully crafted a series of outdoor rooms and spaces that seamlessly connect with one another. This intentional design encourages the family to move effortlessly between the interior and exterior, blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living.

In addressing the challenges of building in a wetland-sensitive area, the use of native plants stands out as a thoughtful and ecologically conscious choice. The lush vegetation not only complements the contemporary design but also harmonizes with the natural surroundings, creating a rich and immersive experience. The outdoor living spaces serve as a bridge between the family and nature, providing a backdrop for relaxation and rejuvenation.

As day turns to night, the landscape undergoes a magical transformation. Soft landscape lighting has been strategically placed to create an inviting ambiance during summer evenings spent dining outdoors and to provide warmth on chilly fall nights by the firepit. What makes this lighting system truly remarkable is its integration with the whole home control system, allowing the family to effortlessly adjust the lighting to suit different moods and occasions.

Adding to the nocturnal allure, native birch trees are delicately bathed in light, producing a unique nighttime environment. This not only highlights the natural beauty of the trees but also contributes to the overall enchanting atmosphere of the outdoor space. The result is a home that not only meets the practical needs of a modern lifestyle but also provides a sanctuary where the family can connect with each other and nature in a harmonious and sustainable way.
