Example of a classic patio design in New York

Romantic Tarrytown TerraceTraditional Patio, New York

Often, less is more. Take this landscape design composed of climbing roses, hydrangeas, and lilies surrounding a bluestone terrace. This small, suburban garden feels both expansive and intimate. Japanese forest grass softens the edge of the terrace and adds just enough of a modern look to make the garden’s owners, urban transplants, happy. “My husband and I were looking for an outdoor space that had a secret-garden feeling,” says homeowner Anne Lillis-Ruth. “We’ve had fun adding furniture, antique planters, and a stone fountain to [landscape designer] Robert Welsch’s beautiful landscape. The white and green plantings provide the perfect backdrop to my collection of colorful table linens, glassware, and china. We love our garden!” Dean Fisher loved it, too. “The setting is so lovely and relaxed. It evokes the south of France, with its intimate scale and the integration of house and patio through the use of the vines and other plantings.”

    Hello jmschmidter, thanks for your question. The vine in the image is a Sweet Autumn Clematis (Clematis terniflora) which is a fast growing perennial that has hundreds of fragrant star shape flowers in late August and early September. One of our favorites!

    Good luck with your project.

    Hello dandilionwishes, thanks for the question. We planted creeping mother of thyme - a low growing ground cover perfect for between steps. So glad you like it.

    Thanks for your question. The stain is a simple tan white wash...just a diluted amount of beige stain that was that same as the trim color of the windows and doors on the house. Chosen by the homeowner. Sorry I don't know the exact name or brand.

    Hope this helps!
