Edwards Residence

Back Flagstone Path
This flagstone path connects the main terrace to the reading niche at the back of the property.
“seems peaceful” — Holly Mariott
Reading Niche
This terrace used to be where the children's play equipment was set up. Now, with three college students, the clients needed more niches where people could have some privacy.
“pots with bench” — gatorpuff
Tropical Planting
The timber bamboo offers privacy screening from the house next door and lends a tropical feeling to this low maintenance planting scheme.
“I can grow bamboos?” — yatii
Carved Granite Birdbath
This carved granite birdbath was selected for this spot because it's asymmetry echoes the branching of the Angel's Trumpet next to it.
“The slate, rock, bark, manicured; I like the style of the bird bath.” — golfki
Front Walk
The curved walkway is gravel with monolithic stone risers, to allow rain and oxygen to tree roots. Ornamental grasses flank the entry. A simple retaining wall matches the home's exterior wainscoting, and is topped with the same slate as their front porch.
“white with dark windows” — terrineuls
Cottage-Style Planting
The secret to a cohesive perennial or cottage-style garden is to have the colors and textures of different plants reference one another. I like to think my background in Fine Arts allows me to use plants like paint in a composition.
“Canopy tree” — sebishop46
