Ted Carter Inspired Landscapes' work at a home in Kennebunk

The owners of this Kennebunk home wanted more parking space, without sacrificing their lush surroundings. Carter created an area for cars behind a clematis-draped trellis, installing Geoblock 5150 pavers beneath the grass to protect it from damage. In front of the house, he amended a steeply sloped lawn with sand fill and loam, creating a flat, green space for picnics, parties, and playing.
