Landscape architecture and design with sustainably produced wood from Maine
Just as I to enjoy the view from Maine? It looks as if it here centuries has been long silent and unmoved, but actually this landscape was destroyed a few years ago by a storm, a Horkan, and many other incidents.
The landscape architect Matthew Cunningham has started the first phase of the renovation. Its design should avoid further erosion problems. Still, other native plants were grown.
Now we can enjoy the ravishing results from this Prijekt only. These are owned by the National Park Service to the Acadia National Park.
The House consists of two main parts
The tea house dates back to the year 1900 and is not been winterized. This renovation was, however, carried in the neighboring Fox House dating back to 2007. Many trees were cut down during the construction of the House. Thus, the House was directly exposed to the wind. Still, it was destroyed by the Horkan Hanna.
Many environmental problems have been solved through the use of some indigenous plants and granite rocks in the vicinity
In this case, the origin of the architect was a great benefit to the project. He knew himself well in the landscape, in general very well knew the details, as well as the small paths, the properties of the Oaks and the blocks of rock, as well as the Evergreen landscape. He loves nature and has therefore planned an academic garden nearby. From this, one can completely enjoy the freedom and beauty of nature.
He has created many paths and terraces by this, from where one can enjoy the environment
A terrace overlooking Somes Sound is like a stone carpet on the lawn, as the architect had fit himself described it
Paper Birch provide more color and help at the same time for the stabilization of the soil. In planting, it has first set to some indigenous plant species, which even in poor ground can grow. Has brought other kinds ground and mixed them with the found.
In the picture we see a strange inhabitants: the Mama – Fox
Now, the landscape in such good condition is so that many local residents have returned to their homeland. She was brave and curious enough to approach the House and steal the leather gloves of the workers!
The fragmentation in several outdoor areas is the dominant idea in the design of the environment
The granite pathways are a common element in this region. In our case, they were acquired by a trader of the situated close to Frankfurt am Main.
For the benefit of a weathered look, the team has attached much MOSS by hand. Use these in the form of leaves dried up. Soon, the spores in their new environment have clearly oriented.
After Cunningham all new plants not only beauty, but also the stabilization of the ambient help
Among other things one has grown fern, bog myrtle, Schflorbeerrosen, Vibrunum and blueberry and Fothergilla
these are also the Red-tailed squirrel, deer, ground squirrels, and many other bird species as well as the Fox.

In addition, the plants in the garden must be hard enough so that they are not completely eaten by deer.
The plan here, you can get a clear, general idea of the situation of the land and the environment
This figure shows a single indentation in the granite wall, what beautiful views of the water.
As you can see in this picture, some of the routes have a dual function
the fine structure serves to protect of the real estate from the erosion through the incoming waters.
From the Hill, the water unit in the ditch next to the road and then routed in river basins and large tube.
Through the minimum protection walls, the House looks like a nest in the Green
The ferns soften the edges and make the House practically in the earth disappear.
The kitchen at the bottom leads to the terrace
Large Granittböcke extend the terrace to the outside. The flight of the Eagle can be seen from these two seats. Deliberately, a less manicured look was achieved. Therefore, it wanted to reach a Park Lodge-style.
This home shows how we can achieve our safety through better knowledge of the nature
Why are we telling you this story? Every day is much more talked about the environmental disasters and concerned, whether you lose not the own house or if you good enough is protected when a storm is from.
