2006 Distinction Award – Outdoor Living Area

Posted by on Nov 21, 2011 in Award Winning Projects | 0 comments

Located near Olney, MD, this beautiful new home was intended to be the gathering place for extended family and friends. The goal of the landscape project was to make the vast, treeless space more intimate for outdoor entertaining as well as to mask a busy road and nearby restaurant. The design solution used a tiered garden complete with several patio areas, steps, and walls. A pergola was installed to shade a large seating area used for entertaining. The small, natural style pond softens the hardscape elements while masking outdoor noises. Finally, strategically placed plantings tied the space together and created a beautiful, intimate setting.
