Weinberg/Newton Residence

Fontana, WI

This vacation property on Lake Geneva achieves the perfect contrast between an artist’s geometric photography studio and a simplistically abstract praire landscape. It’s easy to forget that you’re in a highly developed area as you travel down the meandering red granite gravel driveway and the landscape’s natural charm and towering mature oak trees overwhelm your senses. Along the driveway, short and tallgrass prairie plantings considerately placed in sun and shade pockets captivate visitors. A flagstone walkway creates a smooth transition as planting beds become more planned and formal closer to the studio. Networks of mulch paths span the linear site, providing opportunity for closer exploration of the showy prairie. Formecology, LLC continues to provide annual maintenance as the prairie matures.
