Hillmead Road
Bethesda, MD
The recipient of a 2002 Honor Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects Potomac Chapter, this woodland garden was carved into three acres of moderately sloping woodland. The design of the exterior living space draws its inspiration from the client’s Pennsylvania farmstead roots. The landscape, rustic in character, relies on a series of newly created “ruins” carefully sited within the existing tree canopy. The garden features a fountain that evokes water seeping through a dry-stacked stone wall during the spring snow melt. A Locust timber arbor extends from a tennis and pool pavilion built to resemble a woodland cabin.
