Terrace Garden represents a massive achievement in landscape grading. The backyard of this home was previously a steep hillside that precluded any kind of functional use. We’re proud of what it has become. The terraced yard now has three main levels, each with a designated entertaining space. Throughout the hardscaping, decorative red brick provides continuity that connects the custom-designed gazebo, as well as the dining area next to the stacked-stone outdoor fireplace. The wading pool is aligned with the home’s dining room, so the porch doors can be opened to enjoy the sound of the new waterfall. Overall, the grounds have a restrained color palette—glorious pops of white anchored by lots of greenery.
