natural and picturesque

Lac Massawippi, Eastern Townships

This landscape provides a wonderful example of identity creation on a property. Where reigned desolation, the client dreamed of a completely natural setting (see the photos taken before the landscaping was completed).

Once the poor quality fill was removed and the site was cleared, it took just a little more effort to sculpt a water basin. Designed on two levels in order to blend in with the relief, the pond is divided by a harmonious dam made of logs.

The wooden walkway that runs along and crosses over the pond actually delimits the natural fringe that was preserved. This picturesque promenade is filled with energy and lightness, shadowed by a tree that represents the perfect symbiosis between the site and the surrounding nature.
