The Devrie Residents Landscape Project

This landscape project was a new construction located in Spanish Peaks, Big Sky.  This project presented several landscape challenges from the start.  The house is built on a steep North facing slope and before the landscaping was installed the property held very large amounts of water in the driveway and up against the house in almost all areas.  On three sides of the house slopes were so steep that they were unnavagatable and erosion was a major issue.   We solved the navigation problem with a series of stone staircases and walkways.  This helped with both the steep slopes and by directing foot traffic onto designated areas and off the remaining landscape.  To solve the drainage and erosion issues we built several moss covered boulder retaining walls and changed grade around the entire house including the driveway so there was positive drainage away from the house and diverted all the water into dry creek drainage ditches.
