This is an example of a mid-sized traditional backyard stone landscaping in DC Metro.

An Arlington ResidenceTraditional Landscape, DC Metro

The garden that we created unifies the property by knitting together five different garden areas into an elegant landscape surrounding the house. Different garden rooms, each with their own character and “mood”, offer places to sit or wander through to enjoy the property. The result is that in a small space you have several different garden experiences all while understanding the context of the larger garden plan.

    Also interested in knowing the multi stemmed tree behind the hedge. Is it a stewartia or crepe myrtle or?

          It is Acuba Japonica 'Sulfur' (variegated plant) & the other plant is Loropetalum chinense 'Suzanne'. In zone 7B they have lived in these pots for years. Loropetalum is marginally hardy here, so if we have a very cold winter, I may experience some die back.

        Is the bluestone true blue or varied in color with the tans etc?

          Are the stones natural cleft or thermal? Which stone store in DC area did you buy from?

          The stone is natural cleft which is preferable for laying on stone dust like in this case. We purchase stone at contractor yards and got this material from Tri-State Stone in Bethesda. Any local vendor in our are will carry this type of bluestone. Good luck with your project!

          It is an evergreen Privet called Ligustrum japonicum. It only grows in our zone 7 because it is protected. Best to use this plant in warmer zones.
          Good luck!

        If the stone is not set in mortar how does it stay level?

          I didn't build it but, they most likely have a sand base. It is amazing how well rocks and pavers seat in over time.

          The base has to be well constructed by the mason. A layer of stone dust is tamped and leveled before the stones are laid. Stone selection and precision is critical for the patio to look so perfect and last so long. We only use experienced masons on our jobs and their craftsmanship is amazing.
