Northern Arlington Residence

The design that we developed unified the house with the greater landscape by bringing the curved lines of the corner lot (the street curved around the property) to the design of the drive, the front entry walk and the bedlines, while repeating and extending the linearity of the house in the side terrace garden. The terrace paving pattern also linked house and garden as we continued the same paving pattern found in the center hallway in the flagstone and granite terrace.

Sedges, a creeping vine or some other ground cover that’s no more than a foot or two tall will reduce if not eradicate the need for outside mulch applications. These low plants will slowly spread, self-sowing and, ideally, reducing your garden’s maintenance.

Creeping lilyturf - grass alternative

Replace small lawn areas with a low-maintenance perennial ground cover. Small areas and those that are hard to access may best be served by this low-maintenance solution. Once established, a mass of ground cover has a simple, calming effect. Proper plant selection will eliminate mowing, reduce water consumption and drastically reduce the need to fertilize — saving you time and money. Choose a plant with multiseason interest: flowers, colorful foliage, winter texture. Some ground covers will tolerate a small amount of foot traffic, too. Creeping lilyturf (Liriope spp, zones 5 to 9), shown here, has a lush, grass-like look and is also evergreen. Additional choices — depending on your garden's growing conditions — might include periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus, zones 4 to 9), creeping thyme (Thymus praecox, zones 4 to 9) or snow-in-summer (Cerastium tomentosum, zones 3 to 9).
