First LEED Home in Connecticut
Working on a former farmstead graced with large pasture surrounded by native woodlands, Tom produced landscape design for the first LEED home in Connecticut, rated at LEED-Silver level. Design approach emphasized food production in many forms.
Features include formal vegetable & herb garden, vine fruit pergola, wild woodland garden, orchard and wild berry transition along existing forest edge. Tom’s permaculture-based concept worked with higher maintenance zones close into the home transitioning to lowest maintenance areas along the peripheral woodland edge.
