For this historic Hudson River estate, RBLA regraded a steep, overgrown hillside to create a protected informal overlook, accessed by wide steps from the main house. RBLA re-purposed an 18th century French granite trough to create a generous fire pit. Copious mass plantings of shrubs and perennials hold the hill and provide a lush backdrop.
