Stylish Setting

Fine Landscapes transforms a small infill lot to complement a chic custom home in McLean

Describe the scope of the project?
Fine Landscapes made the most of a small lot with a landscape plan that encompassed a spacious screened pavilion, plunge pool and patio.

What was the plant and material palette? 

Hanover Architectural Appian random pavers on the patio and around the pool are accented by flagstone coping. The pool is a Latham fiberglass pool and adorned with four deck jets that serve as a water feature. Shrubs and perennials provide three-season color in a palette that 
emphasizes white on green.

Talk about the screened pavilion.
Conceived by Harrison Design, the pavilion reflects the clean-lined style of the homeowner, designer Tracy Morris, and provides a transition from indoor to outdoor spaces, which were designed in the same clean, crisp style.

What challenges did the project pose? 

Primarily that of limited space, which we overcame through a sensible design strategy.

Fine Landscapes has been in business for 43 years. 
Its staff of 100 executes more than 100 projects a year, in the price range of $100,000+. Projects include all aspects of design-build.
