*New Projects!* Bethesda Residence
A newly constructed house in Bethesda was in dire need of screening at the property line.
The client wanted a dense privacy screen to act as a buffer from close neighbors, but wanted variation in the plant palette for interest throughout the seasons. A variety of evergreen and deciduous plantings add color and privacy to the back yard.
Drainage was also an issue in the space–a beautifully constructed “dry creekbed” channels water to underground dry wells where it can infiltrate into the surrounding soil. The dry creekebed is dressed up with native Pennsylvania fieldstone boulders and Delaware Valley river gravel that complement the tones of the existing house.
The neighbor’s large house is completely hidden behind a lush, textural screen.
