Townhouse Escape

Design Intent: 

 

  • Transform a townhouse back yard into a beautiful garden than can be viewed from the kitchen

  • Include areas for seating, grilling and an herb garden

Implementation: The rear garden of a DC Row House was overgrown and was only used as a passage to the garage.  A new stone patio with a seat wall; a better configured deck to accommodate a grill and the existing mature dogwood; and a walkway to the garage and back gate opened it up to become a cohesive integrated outdoor space for relaxing, grilling and entertaining.  The garden, characterized by a modern aesthetic, seamlessly integrates the modern feel of the interior of the house.
