Back in October 2014 this property was featured in our Project of the Month blog and is now aptly named The Manor on the Hill. The design for this Port Washington property began in summer 2013. The Goldberg & Rodler design team earned the Judges Award, the top honor in the Long Island Nursery and Landscape (LINLA) awards program, and also won the Gold Award in the Single Family Residence category.
UPDATE 06/22/17: We were just honored with the New York State Nursery & Landscape Associtaion (NYSNLA) 2017 Environmental Beautification Award: Residential Over $100,000 for this project!
This traditional style brick home is the definition of a diamond in the rough. The house sits atop a hill, oriented on an angle, and was found with a landscape in utter disrepair. Our clients had a vision for their home to reclaim its historic integrity while providing the comforts of a modern lifestyle.
The first obstacle was grading the site, which was a massive undertaking. Since the lot was so small, staging equipment and materials was a constant struggle. Tight scheduling and diligent project management were essential components for conducting this project smoothly.
The existing bluestone patio in the rear yard was recycled into a new form that included an aged brick edge. The patio was then extended to accommodate a brick and bluestone fire pit. A u-shaped outdoor kitchen was an essential part of this reimagined landscape.
An incredible amount of coordination was required to carve this diamond out of the rough. The process was grueling and taxing on all parties involved and the result speaks volumes about the power of teamwork. The amount of construction required for this project would make most people shudder or retreat. With determination and due diligence Goldberg and Rodler transformed this landscape into a unique lifestyle experience.
We can tailor a landscape design to fit your lifestyle as well. All projects large and small are treated with the same level of award winning detail. We can do this for you.
