Winnetka Lakeshore Residence Red Cross Showcase

James Martin Associates at Red Cross Event

Winnetka Lakeshore Residence Showcase

John and Francesca Edwardson hosted a Red Cross Event at their Winnetka home and invited James Martin Associates to give a tour of the award winning gardens along the lakefront which were designed by James Martin Associates.  Tom Bolas, VP General Manager, and Heidi Sibert, SVP Landscape Architect, spoke at the event.  The Edwardson home won the national Grand Award from PLANET and a Gold Award from ILCA.   The home highlights a Nantucket Style landscape for the rear yard which compliments the house and newly constructed boathouse.  A goal in the design was to provide a graceful garden access down to the beach from the rear lawn via the roof top patio while retaining an open lawn with a view of the lake.  Specific landscape details include:  stairway to the bluff, bluestone patio on top of the boathouse roof and in front of the boathouse, boulders to retain the bluff set in such a way to create layers and nooks of colorful plantings, perennials throughout, large open lawn with spectacular view of the lake, cobblestone inlays added to the driveway and much more.
