Rue Sherwood Landscape Design

A small urban space under an existing deck in Salem, MA was transformed into a welcoming patio for outdoor entertaining. Large irregular bluestones edged with reclaimed granite cobbles provide a warm and enduring surface. Shade tolerant plantings soften the space and contribute multi-seasonal interest. An elegantly simple privacy screen blocks the view of an adjacent parking area. 3D renderings helped to convey the design intent prior to construction

"Rue worked with me to make the most of a small patio space. She presented material and design options to stay within the budget. Her work and that of the subcontractors was very good. I am very happy with the result." MB
