Inspiration for a traditional backyard formal garden in DC Metro.

Northern Arlington ResidenceTraditional Landscape, DC Metro

The design that we developed unified the house with the greater landscape by bringing the curved lines of the corner lot (the street curved around the property) to the design of the drive, the front entry walk and the bedlines, while repeating and extending the linearity of the house in the side terrace garden. The terrace paving pattern also linked house and garden as we continued the same paving pattern found in the center hallway in the flagstone and granite terrace. Photos taken by Roger Foley

what is that fluffy long grass called!?

  • rell51

    Does this type of grass have purple spikes on them during the year or is it just a taller version of grass that requires low maintenance?

    Yes it does small lavender spikes during the year.

      I love the tall grass. Will this work on a hillside in direct sun?

      The foreground grass looks like Liriope Spicata.
