This small residential home tucked on a ridge in Arlington is special because the family grew up in the neighborhood and fell in love with the people around them. Instead of moving, it was important to stay in the neighborhood which meant adding additions and expanding their home as their family grew. When the time was right, it was ready to do the garden. This involved extending the kitchen and creating another outdoor set of rooms.
This extension of the porch opened up the rear garden for an excellent opportunity to entertain in an outdoor “room”. The original hand crafted copper fountain bowl sets atop a custom stone pond providing just enough splash during any delightful evening.
Although petite, this garden stands bold and proud. New masonry walls and columns flank the gated entrance to this property. The addition of mature sycamore and magnolia trees provided much needed additional privacy for the new entry garden. An intricate scupper fountain flows into a koi pond for a peaceful background noise. A new pergola capped outdoor dining. At the rear of the property the small existing terrace was renovated with a combination of new and salvaged paving materials. Additional outdoor furniture and garden accents ordain the space in a full Buddha motif.
