Chevy Chase Village
A private, backyard oasis designed around an existing in-ground hot tub. Elements included a custom fence and bluestone patio, columnar hornbeams that will be trimmed into a rectangular hedge, and three custom water features to offset the hot tub and define a seating area, creating a spa-like atmosphere.
A white picket fence and arbor extends the line of the house and frames the side garden, while hollies screen the trampoline. The path is enclosed by evergreen trees and is decorated with climbing roses, clematis and hydrangea vines, azaleas, hydrangeas, perennials, boxwood and a native Redbud.
The family’s main entrance area is screened and ornamented with an arbor, a freestanding trellis, and matching trellis enclosures to disguise trashcans and air-conditioning units. The planting includes a red-tipped Coral Bark Japanese Maple visible from an interior landing under planted with evergreen red azaleas and groundcover, with an evergreen Carolina yellow jasmine vine on the arbor.
