Roth treaded lightly on the land, adding drifts of ‘Karl Foerster’ feather reed grass in the meadow to enhance the rolling quality of the ground plane — interventions, to be sure, but judicious ones. “If I had just let a wild meadow reestablish itself, you would not likely have noticed it.” Roth's signature style — sweeping masses of single species — is a distinctly compositional gesture that provides scale and focus within a larger landscape. To maintain privacy in this open landscape surrounded by large suburban-style homes, Roth supplemented the existing native vegetation with spot plantings of pin oak, yellowwood and paperbark maple. And though the planting scheme seems simple, it's not.
