Romantic Tarrytown Terrace

Often, less is more. Take this landscape design composed of climbing roses, hydrangeas, and lilies surrounding a bluestone terrace. This small, suburban garden feels both expansive and intimate. Japanese forest grass softens the edge of the terrace and adds just enough of a modern look to make the garden’s owners, urban transplants, happy. “My husband and I were looking for an outdoor space that had a secret-garden feeling,” says homeowner Anne Lillis-Ruth. “We’ve had fun adding furniture, antique planters, and a stone fountain to [landscape designer] Robert Welsch’s beautiful landscape. The white and green plantings provide the perfect backdrop to my collection of colorful table linens, glassware, and china. We love our garden!”
Dean Fisher loved it, too. “The setting is so lovely and relaxed. It evokes the south of France, with its intimate scale and the integration of house and patio through the use of the vines and other plantings.”

IS THIS A COMMERCIAL FENCE? WHERE CAN I FIND THIS FENCE STYLE?

Hello printergirl2, thanks for your question. This fence is custom, but can be made by most established fence companies who do design and installation in your area. It is a cedar lattice fence with 2" square openings mounted on cedar posts. The bottom section is 4' high, the top section is 2' high for a total of 6 feet in height. I hope this helps. Good luck with your project. More of my work can be found at www.WestoverLD.com Robert.

Hello Jane, thanks for the compliments and your question. The material is thermal cut bluestone, set in a stone dust base with very tight joints. No cement, only stone dust.

Here is another image of this lovely garden.

Hope this helps!

Good luck with your project.

This needs to be ordered and installed by a high quality fencing professional. It is custom cedar lattice stained with a light wash, height is 6 feet, posts are 8 feet, with two feet buried in cement for support. Post caps are also cedar.

We purchased from a high volume wholesale manufacture who sells only to the trade.

Good luck with your project.

I had a fence similar to this made by a carpenter. The lattice was done with 2"x2". The look was a little more open than this picture. I also used a semi-transparent stain. If you use 2"x2" it should be quite durable. Staining the wood also helps.

Hello do, the terrace is set in stone dust on a soft base. The stone was laser cut and has very tight joints. Very easy care and permeability. A standard base of item 4 and gravel was used as the base with stone dust for the joints. Good luck with your project. Robert

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Traditional
Stone and wicker make a great combination that has withstood the test of time. Whether you're at the beach, nestled in the heartland or up in the mountains, this look will serve you well. Just add green edging and flowering plants, and you're good to go.
Fill the Edges with Exuberant PlantsTime required: 1 day.Starting budget: I recently found a 3.5-gallon Endless Summer Blue Hydrangea at Lowe's for $30. If you keep your eyes open, you can find 2.5 gallon shrubs for around $15, and perennials and annuals for just a few dollars. Perennials, annuals and shrubs enliven the patio and transform the color palette.See great design plants
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Upgrade Your Outdoor Privacy With Lattice
Lattice is a great option for separating your yard or patio from the neighbors. It's more open than a wall or fence but still offers plenty of privacy.
Laura Gaskill added this to 13 Quick-Change Boosts for a Spring Patio
11. Add a freestanding umbrella. On an uncovered patio, an umbrella is a must. The freestanding type gives you much more flexibility to place it where it is needed, and will work with any table or chairs.
Becky Harris added this to Get It Done: Clean and Prep the Patio
How to Get Your Patio Ready for Warm WeatherApproximate time: One weekendMaterials needed: Hose, window cleaner, dish detergent, duster, paper towels, rags, sponge, newspaper, broom, painting supplies for furniture (if necessary), plants and soil for pots, clippers
