Project Description

At an elevation of 8800 feet, this project included enhancing the existing native environment of the sub-alpine forest, after the large decimation of native pines due to the pine bark beetle.

A large scale tree transplanting project was initiated to increase the forest density, and provide the sense of “walking in the forest” from inside the house. This entailed thorough planning, design and communication with the tree spade company and the landscape contractor for a successful project.

Enhancing the parking circle, and “courtyards” with colour and textures using perennials and grasses, provides the owners with seasonal enjoyment.
