LOMBARDI RESIDENCE

Groundworks studio has worked on this Arts and Crafts residence in historic Myers Park over many years, developing a master plan, and subsequent implementation projects. The garden contributes to the rhythm of the streetscape with a tapestry of euphorbias, ferns, and heucheras anchored with palms. An angled stepping stone side garden path slices through a sculptural wood bench, and into the casual backyard. Nest chairs offer a welcoming gathering space within the four season garden. The driveway of paver bands planted with steppable groundcover leads one downhill to the garage, where a rain garden of native plants absorbs the stormwater from roof draining the driveway, and the backyard. The kitchen garden abounds with colorful drought-tolerant, and edible plants. Collaborators: Architecture Matters and Reaching Quiet.
