Elegant Courtyard


This project was a pleasure to design. The home is set in an established neighborhood and the clients had existing mature plant material to work with and retain. The existing deck from the back French doors remained and the concrete patio was recovered to mimic flagstone. New flagstone walkways were added to provide pedestrian access, but also to decrease the lawn area and add more garden space. Trees and shrubs were planted for privacy, and a row of hops was trained to cover a bare fence line. A bubbling sphere was added for interest and the gentle sounds of trickling water.
