It’s not often you have the opportunity to work on a project that incorporates a life size, authentic reproduction of a tepee. But that’s just what we encountered a this Daniel Island home. An existing grove of beautiful Oak trees was the perfect foil for the tepee’s new home. We surrounded the structure with low growing shrubs and ground cover, and designed a stone patio for a fire pit close by. With the addition of outdoor lighting and the incorporation of the client’s sculpture into the plantings of native grasses, a great entertaining experience is created. All that’s needed now are sleeping bags and ingredients for s’mores!
