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.”

How'd you attach the trellises to the building? And staked with metal?

hello wyseway, thanks for your question. The tall rose trellis are not attached to the building, only buried into the ground and anchored by the climbing rose plant. No need for additional staking in this particular situation. But you could certainly add additional support if needed.

Good luck with your project!

hello akwegman, thanks for your question. I'm just seeing this. Sorry for the delay. The hydrangeas are called "Limelight" and are one of my favorites. Hope this helps. Good luck with your project. Robert
