Lake Forest Garden
Peter Schaudt, Steve Gierke, and Jayson De Geeter, Hoerr Schaudt, with Thomas Norman Rajkovich, Architect and Jeanne Nolan and Jacqueline Kotz, The Organic Gardener Ltd.

This charming, English country style home was designed in the early 20th century and is nestled quietly into enchanting woodland. The garden’s focal point is a placid lap pool, where a classical fountain and masonry walls establish a serene sense of enclosure. Adjoining the pool court, a foursquare cutting garden and organic vegetable garden are bordered by a tool house at the ravine’s edge. The garden’s structure dissolves into a natural wood that blends with the surrounding neighborhood. more photos
