An Urban Oasis

By Nature's Perspective Landscaping

Having recently completed the construction of a new coach house, this homeowner was ready to tackle the yard to fully enjoy their space. They desired a cozy and private feel with a modern twist, which is a stark contrast to the traditional architecture of their 1889 home. The back yard sits 8 inches lower than the front yard and neighboring properties, which created a bowl-like feel and inhibited drainage. Low walls were installed along the sides to help retain the neighboring soil and an underground gravel dry-well was installed to help improve drainage. The hardscape design includes multiple paths and lounging areas, offering different vantage points of the garden – perfect for morning coffee or conversing with friends. Selected materials include Techo-Bloc pavers, bluestone flagstone, and crushed gravel. Colorful perennials, roses, and flowering shrubs offer interest throughout the year and surround the lounging areas, adding to the cozy feeling.
