    This graceful, classic home called for an equally timeless landscape. Working with the Hoerr Group and Masonry by Fernando, Rosborough Partners installed a sunken lawn court surrounded by Cotoneaster shrubs to soften the walls. The Boston Ivy cloaking the house requires constant care to look its best, a task RP has performed for more than twenty years.
