CONTEMPORARY BACKYARD Washington DC

An elevated bluestone dining terrace looks out over an outdoor living room.  Backed by a new shed and mostly native plantings, the areas feel distinct from one another.  An L-shaped seat wall surrounds the dining area and creates additional seating.  Mexican pebble landings and an upper corridor through the garden create further definition of the spaces.  A grassy area and a single adirondack chair beckons to the sun seeker to come out and play.  Underground swale construction allows downspout water to percolate throughout the property.
