Contemporary Design -
Currently under construction, this
Pennsylvania garden creates a
comfortable outdoor living space
from various sculptural elements.
Dear Garden Associates designed a series of terraces along a central axis from the home. A rectangular arched granite water feature and a see through fire place break the large scale of the terraces to make the space appropriate for both small and large gatherings. From the house, one can look through the water feature and see the glowing fireplace. Suspended bluestone benches border the space while allowing open views of the plantings. An aluminum pergola roof shades the middle terrace while large Japanese Maples shade the furthest terrace and compliment the stone colors. 3D software was utilized to ensure that all elements were sized appropriately, to visualize the relation of the spaces, and to provide color palette selections.
