Through the Garden, Inc.

This project involved the landscaping and architectural design and construction of the gardens surrounding a new residence in Potomac, Maryland.

Through the Garden, Inc. Distinction Award for Front Residential Planting and Entrance Way (Design/Build)

The clients were so enamored with the front entrance feature, a large black-granite fountain from the Black Forest—previously designed and constructed for them by Through The Garden—that when they decided to tear down their house and rebuild on the same site, they wished it to be removed prior to demolition and reconstructed in the exact same manner for the new house. The landscape plan included meticulously reconstructing the entry feature; terracing the rear and side yards and connecting them by formal and informal steps; building a patio outside a “man cave” that was part of the new-house design; incorporating the existing pool and tennis court to ensure a harmonious blend of all elements; and installing low-voltage lighting for a magical nighttime experience.

Outstanding Features

  • The lines of the home’s contemporary architecture are continued in the patios and walls.
  • Hardscaping finishes match the residence, creating a balanced appearance.
  • The pool and deck are seamlessly blended with the redesigned landscape and new patios.
  • Simple, minimal plantings complement the spare, clean lines of the home.
