Narragansett Bay Overlook Gardens

Narragansett Bay Overlook Gardens

Bristol, Rhode Island

This project transformed an undistinguished gently sloping site at the edge of Narragansett Bay into a dramatic landscape. The site, though small, became a composition of landscape rooms, views and landscape experiences. The artfully set boulders and grading restructured the land form and the gardens became settings for sculpture, stone features, plant materials of interesting form, contrasting textures and foliage colors. Plantings defined landscape rooms, views and also critical screening so that the house, deck and pathways enjoy the bay overlook but also the smaller scale views to the lily pond, waterfall and engaging planting vignettes.
