MADISON ALPINE GARDEN
An urban courtyard garden for a young couple with deep connections to outdoor living and gardening. A living screen is part of a boundary wall around the property that filters views from inside the house and allows a feeling of intimate privacy and outward expansiveness to the landscape. Native bonsai pines and a high alpine planting palette were rescued from a defunct nursery and planted to evoke wild nature within an urban oasis.
