Davis Square GardenContemporary Landscape, Boston

A structured urban garden nestled in the heart of Davis Square provides usable outdoor spaces for an active, modern family. Tightly crafted wood screens provide privacy from the bustling streetscape and enclose half of the garden. Lichen-covered granite blocks from Maine form a seat height bench along one edge of a richly patterned brick terrace, and an elderly pear tree shades a fantastic outdoor dining room. Native shrubs, ferns, grasses, and other drought tolerant perennials soften edges and create multi-seasonal interest. An herb and vegetable garden along the north side of the property creates a productive and meaningful use of limited space in an otherwise forgotten part of the garden.

    Hello--the materials used for this hardscaping are "natural cleft, full color range bluestone." Most stone supply companies should be able to help your source this product--good luck!

    The garden path in this picture looks really very good with the lush green grass. Constructing a dream garden path brings a new look to the entire outdoor space. The rectangular blocks in the fencing also looks good.

    Thank you for sharing the picture with everyone here.
