North Arlington ResidenceTraditional Landscape, DC Metro

The Entry and Parking Courtyard : The approach to the front of the house leads up the driveway into a spacious cobbled courtyard framed by a series of stone walls , which in turn are surrounded by plantings. The stone walls also allow the formation of a secondary room for entry into the garages. The walls extend the architecture of the house into the garden allowing the house to be grounded to the site and connect to the greater landscape.

    Granite cobbles are set between the asphalt and the concrete.

    This design is absolutely gorgeous! Can you please tell me what the driveway material is? Looks like chipped slate? Looking for something that is porous, in the blue/gray family, and not too messy! Thank you!

    The driveway is maintained with coal tar. The trick to good asphalt is installing it in two layers.

    They were purchased by the client. We do not know where they are from. Sorry.
