Set into a hollow, the tennis court surface slopes are dead-on. The grading machine skims the surface and a computerized laser controller lifts and drops the machine’s blades. This creates a perfect pitch. With the play surface installed, the fencing goes up and the net is raised, they have a beautiful place to play. After a hard day on the court, they have a spot to hang on the new back patio with a cold drink. A better aligned driveway and fresh gardens at the front give a more welcoming entrance. The landscape conveys a clear sense that this owner cares. This family’s property maintains its bucolic feel with a sharp line between living spaces and the forest, between the sacred and the profane.
