The design of the surroundings for the cantilevered café terrace included an urban meadow of grasses and flowering perennials with flowering vines on vertical screens. A spring garden was planted with Achillea, Saliva, Nepeta and Allium, visible from the dining area above. Sweeps of perennials, bulbs and grasses were choreographed to provide color and texture from spring through winter. Veterans Park Bucks County, Pa. Walkways along the great lawn were selected to be planted with native grasses and perennials to attract birds and insects. A once unstable and heavily eroded slope was restored with plantings to become a lush hillside with steps leading from the residence to a lake edge.
