The livable footprint of this Chevy Chase, DC residence was extended with the implementation of two outdoor rooms for dining and lounging. This stylish contemporary landscaping plan features an elevated dining terrace bordered by a wall that allows for overflow seating during a party. The sunken living room patio, is backed by a storage shed, and includes a moveable firepit for many a teen aged gathering! A mostly native plant palate focuses on pinks and blues with white accents. Rainwater from the home’s downspouts travels under the flagstone patio laid on stone dust and is directed into the beds to allow for infiltration. Trees planted on the border of the property encourage stormwater to stay on site rather than running off into back alley.
