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 is the trellis stabilized for the climbing roses, thank you.

Hello 510lake, the trellis is anchored into the ground and attached at the top to the board at the edge of the garage roof. Hope this helps.

Good luck with your project!

Hello Sheila, thanks for your question. The house siding and fence where painted by the homeowner prior to our work on the landscaping project. I'm sorry I don't know the specific names or brand of the stains or paints used.
