Uxbridge Escape

Uxbridge Escape

This 100 acre country residence has an amazingly beautiful location in the rolling hills near Uxbridge, and backs onto the well-known Wooden Sticks golf course. The landscape design of this property needed to reflect a century home style and still meet the clients needs. Walkways, patios, hot tub, fire pit, beach volley ball and basketball court, a country garden as well as extensive other plantings were their main requirements. Random Credit Valley dry laid flagstone pathways and patios, with Manitoulin stone steps form the hard landscape base to the three main entrances to the house. A wooden picket fence encloses the garden area and frames the landscape around the house. Abundant foundation plantings of evergreen shrubs for winter interest were planted, and thousands of exuberant flowering perennials provide color and interest from spring to fall Around the side of the house, a hot tub is tucked into the slope. With an oversized Owen Sound flagstone staircase and walkway, and more plantings that connect it to the front gardens, the hot tub area fits in well with the surrounding environment. The rear yard has a second story deck and staircase, and a lower floor entry that allows uninterrupted access to all the garden areas. From the lower patio, a flagstone staircase flows through the garden to an existing upper walled terrace. The original rock garden surrounding this terrace was gently renovated to ensure it matched the style of the newer planting areas.
