Ed Ball Landscape Architecture creates outdoor spaces for all seasons

Ed Ball Landscape Architecture offers full-service landscape design and construction services. Landscape architect Ed Ball brings more than 20 years of experience to his work; from pools, spas and pavilions to kitchens, fireplaces and entertainment spaces, he and his team create year-round outdoor living spaces for clients in the DC region and beyond.

What did the project involve?
We were hired by clients in the Bahamas to create a functional, private garden space with great flow on a very small lot.

What challenges did you face?
We had to ensure that the outdoor spaces would offer plenty of circulation and would feel much bigger than they actually are. We accomplished these objectives by using vertical lines in our design that keep traffic patterns open, and by allowing the adjacent properties to expand the views beyond the property lines.

Describe plantings and materials.
Neem trees, coconut palms, Dwarf Buttonwood just to name a few tropicals. Lush lawn and coral stone and textured-concrete stepping stones. A synthetic lawn and pavers enhances the driveway.
