featured property Brookline Brownstone

Tapping Jim’s horticultural expertise, this award-winning Brookline residence was transformed into a plant lover’s paradise. And while the striking English style garden is prominent, the driving force of the design is the series of outdoor spaces that unify the property and complement the homeowner’s lifestyle.

about this property

Brookline, Massachusetts | Built in the early 1900’s, this Brookline Brownstone home had retained its original charm and great architectural bones. Unfortunately, the surrounding landscape had reverted to a narrow and barren yard that did not suit the homeowner’s lifestyle. The owners desired spaces to sit and relax, a lawn for their children to play on, and gardens for the wife to tend and enjoy. a Blade of Grass offered the right solution: dividing the property into a series of smaller garden rooms that satisfied all the design program elements.

These new spaces include a restful patio, a parterre cutting garden, a "checkerboard" main entry, and an elongated lawn garden with a whimsical pergola set within the award winning English style gardens.
