Skaneateles, New York
The site planning and landscape design for this retreat is inspired by the character found in the paintings of French impressionist Claude Monet, and by the French Country architectural character of the surrounding buildings. Mass plantings of colorful perennials, shrubs and grasses bring seasonal interest to the Inn, Spa, and Cottages. A water lily adorned koi pond, French-blue footbridge, and intimate pathways are the garden’s center piece and organizing feature. EDR’s design has created a lush and colorful environment that offers a true get-away for its patrons.
