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 for emotional well-being. On evenings and weekends, they eat dinner in the covered area and watch TV.”
