The work of Kimberly Mercurio Landscape Architecture was featured in an article published on the Houzz titled, Get the Look: New England Garden Style. The article, posted on October 25, 2016, is an examination of the distinct elements that contribute to the look and feel of a residential garden in New England. This "How To" guide looks at hardscapes and softscapes and uses images of Mercurio's work in West Falmouth and Chatham, MA on Cape Cod to illustrate the classic building materials and plants traditionally found in the gardens of homes located in the Northeastern United States. The landscape design components featured in the article include,
- Plant types for seasonal gardens
- Pea stone gravel and crushed shell driveways
- Picket fences, covered garden gates and stone walls
- Garden accessories such as outdoor furniture and containers
Design elements are examined within the context of seasons, weather, and the USDA zones found in the New England landscape.
