|Two years ago, this absolutely gorgeous garden in Potomac was a mere lawn. One stepped out of the back kitchen door onto two acres of lawn. The garden is now a masterpiece in form and function. Two grand terraces are sited off the house capturing views to a wetland, a grove of willows, a long holly hedge and an orchard. Stairs down to the pool are framed by flowering Yoshino cherry trees. A covered pergola structure houses fans and lighting for evening gatherings. A spa is set at the base of a water fall with a spillway that gently drops water into the spa. The night lighting is spectacular and accentuates the water features and plantings. Understated drama, perfect flow, and proportion are highlights in this supremely elegant garden.
