Here is a new landscape we are currently working on in Washington. The new house was carved into a slope above Lake Waramaug, creating this interesting courtyard. The space includes a pergola covered dining space, an entertainment area with fireplace and entrance gates that provides some enclosure from the driveway/garage side of the house. I love how the two gates line up as you enter the space drawing the eye through the courtyard and pergola into the garden beyond. Let me know what you think?
