This serene backyard incorporates a teahouse, ZDA designed Zen clothesline, and ornamental evergreens into a contemplative space. The at-grade brick patio provides an accessible entrance for aging in place. The espaliered pear, trellises, and evergreen hedges enhance the privacy of this small urban lot.

The front yard is highlighted by natural stone retaining walls, and wrought iron fence was designed to be in keeping with the English cottage style of the house. A collection of specialty evergreen plantings were selected for their architectural forms and low maintenance requirements.
