Wheat’s Landscape Design + Construction

Urban Retreat

Wheat’s was hired to overhaul a small backyard in Northwest DC containing a large pool that dominated the space. Designer Joshua Dean replaced it with multifunctional zones that include a play lawn, an appropriately sized pool and a covered patio.

The property is bordered by fastigiate European hornbeam. The veneer on the covered patio is sandblasted marble and details include a natural gas grill from Al Fresco; fans by Haiku Home; phantom screens; Infratech ceiling heaters; dimmable LED lighting from FX/Luminaire; and a Pebble Fina pool finish.

“This garden enables outdoor living at its best,” says Dean. “The family plays sports on the turf and cools down in the pool. On evenings and weekends, they eat dinner in the covered area and watch TV.”
