S T O R Y J O Y C E T U R N E R G I O N E T P H O T O G R A P H Y S A N D Y M A C K AY Why pack the car, round up the kids and fight Friday night traffic on Ontario's highways when a blue water paradise is waiting at home? Enjoy two completely different takes on landscape design. LE JARDIN À LA FRANÇAISE "We were looking for a backyard retreat that we could enjoy at night as well as during the day and we wanted the design to complement our home's French- inspired architecture," says homeowner Liane Enns. "Working with the team at ProScape Land Design Inc. was a great experience. They created an inviting, secluded space that we use far more than we thought we would for relaxing and entertaining family and friends," says Enns. The design recently won a Landscape Ontario Award of Excellence in the residential construction category. As the French might say, ProScape's design is completely au fait. A thoroughly modern take on the formal symmetrical garden known as le jardin à la française. It combines symmetry, connecting paths, formal planting beds, stone walls, copper fire pits, clipped hedges and water features. To match the home's exterior, the hardscape combines Indiana limestone and sandstone. summer spaces SERENE Con t i n u e d on pa ge 5 6 54 | ourhomes S P R I N G 2 0 1 8 backyard tour
