Clients hired Michael Prokopchak of Walnut Hill to transform an aging property in Annapolis. The project entailed renovating a pool; creating a deck; reorienting and replacing the driveway to improve parking and incorporate lush plantings to complement the architecture of the home.
“The design was conceived to have the least impact on the local waterway,” says Prokopchak. “Native plantings offset the increase in lot coverage, while hardscape is designed to meet impervious requirements. Having a firm grasp of the local permit requirements ensured that we could stay one step ahead.” Plantings provide year-round color and texture. Pennsylvania bluestone crisply defines the front stairs, walkways, pool coping and wall caps.
- Monolithic bluestone steps create a contemporary, functional entry to the property
- Copper scuppers positioned in the stone raised beam spill into the pool
- Low-voltage lighting subtly highlights walkways, columns and trees
- Large masses of hydrangea, fountain grasses and boxwood soften the hardscape and provide seasonal color.
