A restrained, modern landscape plan enhances a McLean show house

Garden designer Charles Owen and landscape architect Oomer Syed of Fine Landscapes, Ltd., were asked to develop a modern garden plan for Aspire House, a show-house event that took place in a home on Mackall Farms in McLean. The team correlated their design with the clean lines of the home, which was designed by Artisan Builders. Owen and Syed crafted an entry walk out of large-format mirage ceramic tiles offset by turf strips to focus on the central vestibule. The rear garden is visible from the front entrance; it features a rectangular reflecting pool bordered by three laser-cut aluminum panels and a linear fire trough. Entertainment spaces are delineated by modern and linear concrete pavers. Crape myrtle and varied species of multi-trunk holly frame the space.

Design Features
  • A grilling station and wet bar feature contemporary stainless-steel cabinetry
  • Steeds holly hedges create a green wall along the street that defines the front garden
  • An Old World-style cobbled carriage court mixes classic with modern style
  • The water feature and linear fireplace convey a “fire and water” theme
