Narrow DC Property
Homeowners had an ugly view of their narrow back yard. The garage is accessed from a back alley; it takes up some of the yard space. My design provided three new entertaining areas: a transitional deck just outside the sitting room door which is perfect for enjoying a cocktail; a grilling and dining terrace set on the diagonal to visually widen the space; a 'getaway' upper garden 'living room' from which to view the house. Lush plantings provide four season interest: color, fragrance and textures abound.
