Magnolia Hardscape Remodel

The old retaining walls needed to be replaced. The task was to redesign the wall and driveway for more width without losing street appeal. Materials, shapes and textures were designed to appear original to the 1930s Tudor brick home. I designed a metal arbor to support a fragrant white wisteria and spot lights. The arbor serves to bridge the two garden spaces and its asymmetry balances the asymmetry of the home. Inlaid brick in the driveway breaks the expanse of concrete and curves in the retaining wall reflect the curves of the home.
