Wilmington DE Landscape Architects
Privacy, outdoor entertaining and play areas for children and dogs were priorities for this stately family home within the city. Substantial additions added living space to an historic brick house. Attractive plantings were added to soften the architecture. A welcoming cobblestone courtyard and main entrance are shielded from the road by clipped hedges.
At the rear of the house a terrace, with an outdoor kitchen provides a generous space for outdoor living and entertaining. A formal axis of Yoshino Cherries under planted with perennials leads to the lawns beyond while adding seasonal interest and fragrance. At one side of the property, a fishpond, set in informal plantings, enhances a play area for the children and their dogs.
