Jennifer Horn Landscape Architecture

Honorable Mention - Total Residential Contracting

Jennifer Horn Landscape Architecture (JHLA) is a boutique firm delivering highly detailed landscape designs that feel like inevitable extensions of the architecture
and lifestyle of the residents.

Homeowners in Falls Church had just completed a new traditional home with a rustic workshop on the property. They hired JHLA to devise a landscape plan that would connect the two disparate structures.

Principal Jennifer Horn created a croquet court that flows between the buildings, with Colonial steppers creating access across elevations. Her planting and hardscape choices reflect the style of each, with heirloom species, bluestone and formal edging around the house while natives interspersed with boulders and irregular flagstones adorn the workshop area. Says Horn, “Plant selection is key. It can enhance architecture in subtle yet profound ways. Our planting plan connects two spaces while creating a bespoke mix of species.”


  • The residence is planted with heirloom species like lilac, hydrangea and boxwood
  • Native plantings near the workshop are consistent with the woodland beyond
  • Endless mountain boulders hold the grade and minimize the need for wall footings that would damage adjacent oak trees
  • A croquet court with Bermuda grass is a focal point and an opportunity for entertaining
