NICKERSON FARM

The new owners of this antique Cape fell in love with its rambling character even though much of the house was overgrown with dense vegetation. Ancient lilacs flanking the front entry door were relocated into a native hedgerow planted as a screen from the adjacent right of way. Of particular challenge was a stream and wetland caused by shifting upland drainage patterns which was remedied by the installation of a garden planted with native wetland species. Fieldstone harvested from the site was incorporated into a retained grass terrace that takes advantage of the views over Menemsha Bight.
