Wheat’s Lawn and Custom Landscape

Providing high-quality work at great prices to discerning homeowners

Wheat's Lawn and Custom Landscape - Tapped to transform the approach to a home, landscape designer Mark Finlayson, CPH, and his team first tackled the driveway’s circulation and parking, then conceived a front garden that acts as an outdoor “foyer,” creating a sense of arrival.

After upgrading and relocating an outdated septic system, the team employed a range of hardscape materials to create the garden’s framework, including precast Tudor-style balustrades that complement the home’s architecture; Carderock stone retaining walls, columns and lawn step risers; chiseled, monolithic bluestone slabs for water-feature coping, rill trough and steps; and Pennsylvania flagstone walkways, pathways and step treads. Reclaimed granite cobblestone paves the drive. Foundation plantings include boxwood parterres and cloud formations, Dwarf mondo grass borders, hellebores, pachysandra, geranium, wisteria and climbing hydrangea.

Design Features
  • A central courtyard fountain is a focal point for the garden
  • A precast balustrade conveys Old World Tudor-style
  • Chiseled stone lawn steps radiate out in concentric circles from the lower fountain basin
  • Reclaimed granite cobbles delineate the circular drive

Award-winning Wheat’s offers design, installation and maintenance solutions with a premium on personalized attention, creativity, craftsmanship and lasting relationships.
