The Todd Group is excited to share this project with you, completed in partnership with Deborah Cerbone Associates.
An Equestrian Country Estate
Deborah Cerbone Associates, Inc. partnered with The Todd Group to update a landscape that had become overgrown and somewhat disorganized.
The homeowners keep their Thoroughbred racehorses at a training facility, but still wanted to evoke the feeling of a horse farm.
Graceful wrought iron gates guard the redesigned paving stone driveway, flanked by delicate pink roses. Deborah reused the large boxwood plants which had previously blocked the view of the home.
The driveway terminates in a sweeping courtyard at the home’s entrance which offers ample parking.A portico was added over the front entry to protect guests from the elements.
This statue flanks the entrance to the home and celebrates the clients’ love for their horses.
Descent into the Garden
The bluestone staircase to the great lawn and lower terrace were installed by The Todd Group.
The Todd Group redesigned the back terrace to correct a drainage issue. Custom fabricated bronze railings were installed on the second floor. In the distance, another bluestone staircase leads to the pool area.
Linking Home & Garden
Deborah set bluestone squares into the lawn to provide a link between the wings of the home and the great lawn.
Plants Complete the Picture
Here clusters of Russian sage, pink Drift roses and globe allium subtly echo the colors of the stone wall installed by The Todd Group. Deborah loves Russian sage for its ability to thrive in almost any soil conditions.
Framing the View
A pair of Cryptomeria japonica offer a tantalizing glimpse of the conservation easement beyond the great lawn.
The pink blooms of this spring-flowering cherry tree are replaced in summer by the pink astilbes pictured next to a cream-colored hydrangea. Note how precisely the paving stones are cut. This exquisite attention to detail is just one reason The Todd Group is the preferred partner of Deborah Cerbone Associates, Inc.
