A Picture Says a Thousand Words

Updated: Dec 6, 2022

I was scrolling through the photos on my phone this evening when this picture caught my attention. It is of a garden on Capitol Hill that we installed last winter. The reason I originally took this picture – and why it caught my attention again – is that it captures the essence of much of our work.

There is a strong hardscape design with a mix of materials, so the garden looks great all year long. Interesting details (like the shadow line on the stair’s riser and the Ipe cap on the stone seat wall) add richness. The planting offers a great visual contrast to the hardscape in both its texture and color. And what you can’t see from this are the multiple outdoor living spaces. I look forward to sharing more about this garden in the coming months – especially the Mugnaini wood burning pizza oven.
