Middle Cottonwood Residence

Featured in 2013 October issue of Sunset magazine and the Bozeman Daily Chronicle HOME

This designed involved creating an outdoor space for entertainment for the homeowner’s large family, and included a fire pit, to enjoy during our cool summer evenings.

Stone treads were utilized for the grade change and provided a smaller, separate seating area behind them. The edge of stone walk and patio created planting spaces for native perennials and grasses.

This high elevation project, located in a mountain meadow allowed the use of native perennials and grasses, as well as seeding a native lawn with Idaho Fescue. Creating stone paths for pedestrian traffic, a patio for summer use, and allowing the stone edge of the pathways to define the planting areas, created a sense of place in the meadow.

The pictures show this project a month after installation.
