The article, titled “Back to Nature,” by Bruce Irving, explores how the owner, a talented landscape team, and the Brookline Conservation Commission brought back the property’s serene beauty.
|The homeowner of 88 Cottage Street, Brookline, who has loved the brook since she was a child, worked with landscape architects of Howard Garden Designs, excavation contractors of Downing Northeast, consulting ecologists and arborists of Hartney Greymont and Brookline’s Conservation Commission toward a sensitive renewal of the quiet oasis in the middle of busy Greater Boston.|
Native water plants such as pickerel weed, cattails, and sweet flag were bought in, and were soon joined by local volunteer plants to form a vibrant wetland community.
