Aberdeen Creek

The Aberdeen Creek project is laid out as a series of rooms around the perimeter of the house. Together, these green rooms create a place of meditation and connection with nature.

The garden has evolved as an ongoing collaboration between client, gardener, and landscape architect over 12+ years. Explorations of texture, flower color, and seasonal change are notable attributes of the garden.
