I like to call this my secret door project. From beginning to end, this landscape installation was a lot of fun and the clients were a pleasure to work with.  Early in the process, they told me that they wanted a flagstone patio, a fire pit, some landscaping and a stucco garden wall with an arched door entering the patio area from the driveway…..not your typical request.   But, I was intrigued by the possibilities and proceeded to create the design.

The stucco wall was built and we installed the flagstone patio and walkway.Stucco wall

We built a fieldstone fire pit and seat wall.

We installed 3 iron trellises and climbing clematis on the garage wall behind the seat wall.

And the entrance from the driveway as well.

    Thank you Karen! I’m looking forward to writing about some of the projects completed by the other designers at Main Street too.

    Love the whole concept of the garden door and the fire pit etc. Would love to have something like this at my house one day 🙂 It is absolutely beautiful!
