Rear Terrace and Garden -
This Bucks County garden features a
rear terrace and garden designed to
be an extension of the interior
living space.

From inside the house, one looks over the new terrace and through the new plantings to the open back yard. The rectangular patterned flagstone gives a clean look to the terrace, while the curved outer edges blend the space into the surrounding gardens. This flagstone terrace is dry set with tight joints which prevents weed growth and removes the maintenance that is associated with mortared joints. A stone wall provides extra seating for the terrace while also providing screening for the adjacent hot tub. This way the hot tub can still be enjoyed close to the home without becoming an obtrusive element when not in use.
