MARSH EDGE RESTORATION

SCITUATE, MASSACHUSETTS

This home for a family of five overlooks a tributary to the North River Scenic Waterway near its mouth to the Atlantic. As part of a permit to the local Conservation Commission, Coyle & Caron proposed removal of invasive exotics and replacement with upland species including: eastern red cedar, red maple, blueberry, and arrowwood. Restoration efforts also included removal of turfgrass lawn and replacement with marsh species including: groundseltree, switchgrass, sedges, bergamot, purple flag, and goldenrod.

Collaborators included: Ivas Environmental and Sarah Lalone Interior Design.
