Crofton, MD Back Yard
My client had a long list of requirements for this Crofton, MD back yard, among them: screening of the neighbor’s house, an entertaining area for the family and guests, working with very tight drainage throughout the property, and a lush palette of deer resistant, low maintenance plantings.
My first challenge was posed by the two existing exterior doors- how to unify the space and have it function as a smooth transition?
My solution was a beautiful cedar pergola which unites the two doorways and creates a single point of access to the main patio. The new space is sized perfectly for weeknights when it’s just my two clients at home.
The generously sized patio is constructed of tumbled concrete paving units. The soft greys and browns blend well with the Pennsylvania flagstone border. Lush plantings all but obscure the neighbor’s house.
The completed project is scaled to fit the space and provides the client with a cool, green retreat from the cares of the day.
