Home of author Washington Irving, Sunnyside is a 40-acre historic site on the Hudson River that reflects Irving's romantic view of art, his-tory, and nature. Starting in 1835, Irving planted trees and shrubs and designed garden paths, vistas, and water features. But significant dam-age by stormwater flows from upper reaches of the watershed had spurred Historic Hudson Valley (the organiza-tion managing the site) to hire Stantec to control flood waters and restore the landscape. It was essential for any proosed work on the grounds to respect and reflect Irving's landscape vision. Work entailed removal of insufficient culverts and an engineered sluiceway filled with exposed corrugated plastic piping. It also included construction of two stone bridges and a pedestrian bridge, restoration of the stream and landscaping, and integration of a pond into the stormwater mitigation plan. Drainage outlets and spillways, footbridges, and a stone wall were all de-signed -along with other elements of the storm water infrastructure -to complement the original buildings and site features. The design has achieved its functional purpose while allowing visitors to experience the site as it appeared in Washington Irving's time.
All of the selected materials ar not only indigenous to the Hudson River Valley but also historically corred. The selected riparian plants also needed to stabilize stream banks while withstanding high volumes of water and high-velocity stream flows. A major focus of the design team was how new elements could fit naturally into their surroundings.
