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.”

hello lundters, thanks for your question. Yes, I think a classic bluestone will compliment a dark gray house with black shingles. It is a classic combination.

Good luck with your project!

Hello Iconky, thanks for your note. We do not work in CT. Try searching for designers in your area here on Houzz, or you can try the website for the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, APLD.org and use their "find a designer" tab.

The variety in the foreground looks like Limelight to me.

Perhaps the most versatile "structure" of all, an outdoor umbrella is a must for hot days. Like a beacon, it instantly signifies the center of action.

Can you give a rough cost of the stonework for the patio? - My wife and I plan on doing a much smaller space than this but this stonework is gorgeous. PRO Westover Landscape Design, Inc.
