Before & After: Durrant’s Hillside Pool

before and after garden harvard ma  durrant garden design

It’s rare that I find a good before and after by a designer that is so close to home (at least for me) .  The Durrants of Durrant Design live right here in my little town and this project is not far from my house.  So it is with extra special pride in my hometown design colleagues that I share this beautiful makeover.

I love this garden for it’s nice way of working with the landscape elements that were already there and quite likely unable to move (like the ledge that is sticking out) and turning it into an organized, natural looking space that fits with the local vernacular.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
