Courtyard in West Roxbury backyard

Back yard foliage and wall in West Roxbury

The owners of this house on a busy street in front of a bus stop dreamed of a private backyard oasis . This space was an open canvas and had a shared driveway and a rental unit next door. The couple requested a place to entertain family and friends in a beautiful private garden for socializing and relaxing.  The design also included a reading deck and a secluded sitting space surrounded by fragrant and drought tolerant plants.

The deck looks over an inviting entrance into the luxuriant, “no mow” garden. The secluded patio at the far end of the garden was designed as a more intimate setting for a firepit or reading area.
