Chatham Bars Inn
The Inn’s outdoor veranda looks out over a sloped hillside down to a drop off drive in the foreground and out over Chatham Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean in the distance. Mr. Olmsted, while working at Hart Howerton, did a complete redesigned the plantings on this slope to provide a more diverse plant palette that extended the ornamental interest throughout the year. The slopeside is bathed in large swaths of color that moves over the hillside of shrubs and perennials. Annual beds along the edges provide that splash of color the completes the composition for the historic front door of this classic Cape Cod hotel.
