rockridge residence

The owners of this Upper Rockridge home wanted to update their garden entry and provide more privacy and seating.

A new retaining wall in the sunken courtyard expanded the available seating and patio area, while also improving drainage from the upper street with the inclusion of a french drain system.

At the upper street entry, a metal fence and gate were designed to provide a barrier from the street activity above. The fence was softened by the planting of Sword Ferns, ornamental Potato Vines and Virginia Creeper which added fall color to the garden.

A large visible side wall to the upper garage was transformed into a green wall with Creeping Fig and flowering Trumpet Vine.
