Garden on the Bluffs

Fox Whyte’s garden for this new, Scarborough Bluffs home emphasizes its clean, modern lines with innovative use of architectural plants such as hedges of horsetail. An Algonquin-stone walk leads up steps to the front door, where a custom-designed stone bowl will hold seasonal displays. In back, a low deck, lined by ferns, moss and bamboo, plus a raised deck with built-in BBQ offer a nexus for entertaining, with stunning views of Lake Ontario. Across the lawn under old oaks, guests can lounge at the lip of the bluffs beside perennial beds first planted by the client’s parents.
