COOLIDGE POINT NARRATIVE
Set on a granite peninsula which juts out into the Atlantic, the cypress boat-house was being expanded to accommodate the needs of three generations of the family. I was called in to assist with the development of the residential wing and decks and to provide the framework of the landscape. Work included construction of a granite perimeter wall, granite piers with hand-cut, cedar pickets. Site work included the removal of invasive greenbrier and poison ivy, resetting massive stone ledges, planting with coastal plant materials, and reconstructing a hurricane damaged stone sea wall.
