Loch Collective

Jurors said that the design expertly addresses water and drainage issues within the site. They commended a masterful presentation of a well-composed small space, with before and after photography that helped to tell the story.

Honor Award in Residential Design

The landscape architect worked with the family to design a small, flexible refuge for their 18th century historic home in Annapolis, MD.  The entire foundation of the house consisted of granite blocks from old ship hulls. Twelve tons of soil had to be excavated, removed, or amended from the site to achieve proper drainage. 

Plans showing client desires.

Rainwater that lands in the garden and on the roof infiltrates into the soil or moves towards the basin, placed below the children’s river pebble play area.

An aerial hedge, lush ferns, and tall bed of grasses enclose the open space, with the gravel terrace offering a place to sit, eat, and dance.

The square lawn provides a soft play space for kids.
