Ecrinos Pond and Gardens

Located at a private residence north of Montreal, this project repaired and revitalized the leaking pond and its surrounding area. This space, which was unproductive and had little vegetative diversity, was transformed into a lush landscape filled with native edible and flowering plants. Terraces were also integrated into the landscape, allowing the client to enjoy the space, which had previously been difficult to access. Oriented to make best use of the afternoon and evening sun, the main terrace provides a great place to enjoy a meal and an evening fire with family and friends.  Key to the site’s sensory experience is the peaceful sound of the stream trickling in the background.
