The Chase Meander exemplifies garden composition carried through from overall spatial design to the smallest details.
The clients needed a path system that would allow for wheelchair access into the home. LandCurrent conceived of a meandering path from the driveway to the back yard. The long meander allowed for a gradual slope of the path. The accessible route continues in the backyard with a deck ramp that is beautifully integrated into the deck design. During the design process a composition of meandering shapes and zig-zag patterns started to emerge. Meandering drifts of different plants, the corners of the metal railings and the steps to the front door all reinforce the composition.
The garden offers a large deck, pathways, front door steps, a sitting nook, and a water feature.
