 Once a private country estate dating back to the early 20th century, Chanticleer opened to the public in 1993 and offers a diverse variety of garden spaces that appeal to all of the senses.  They pride themselves in the garden experience and allow visitors to explore and discover all of the grounds.  With that mantra in mind, they approached Jonathan Alderson Landscape Architects, Inc. to address a stepped and steep path adjacent to the main house terrace.  
       
     
 The Lenfest Center enhances Cheslen’s unique sense of place while celebrating the diversity of the Chester County landscape.  
       
     
 The landscape master plan for this 54 acre farm includes native hedgerows, wildlife areas, meadows, and gardens.  
       
     
       
     
 The goal of this project was to create spatial coherence between a newly constructed gallery, a pool, and the existing residence. Native plantings, including a cool season meadow and lush masses of warm season grasses, capture light and create movement to frame views. 
       
     
 The Meadow Garden, an 86 acre garden at Longwood Gardens, opened to the public in June of 2014. The project is built upon Jens Jensen’s notion that “a garden, to be a work of art, must have the soul of the native landscape in it.”
       
     
 Rain gardens, meadows, and green roof design are all critical parts of this complex site.  
       
     
 Wishing to maintain the natural beauty of the place, we drew inspiration from the surrounding landscape to identify native vegetation, textures, materials, and forms. Using plant regeneration zones to filter the pool water, a pond-like swimming pool now nestles into the natural landform. 
       
     
 Working in tandem with Ballinger Architects and green roof pioneers, Roofmeadow, Jonathan Alderson Landscape Architects, Inc. developed a network of conventional and roof top gardens spanning a range of extensive and intensive planting conditions for the Reading Hospital’s recent expansion project.  
       
     
 Respecting the spirit of the site, the plantings help restore the land while creating a harmonious transition into the larger landscape.  A full, naturalistic palettte of grasses and perennials echo the natural landscape while the use of simple indigenous materials, such as dry-laid stone walls, evoke the local character of Chester County.
