After removing the poison ivy and ill-conceived wood chips, the crew expand the existing deck topping it with an L-shaped bar. A wide paver patio boasts a dining table for six at one end and a shady pergola at the other. Professional landscaper Chris Lambton adds life to the backyard with fountaingrass, late-blooming lilacs, spirea and unexpected pops of color with ornamental peppers, asparagus and lettuces.
Custom bamboo screens frame the view of a feature at the end of a stepping stone path. The subsurface of this striking space is concrete, which is hidden by river rock. This garden was featured in the May/June 2012 issue of Fine Gardening. See more photos of this space at our website: mosaic-gardens.com.
