In the back, Felman creates a charming, special space where the couple can relax. To finish off the space, the crew restores the stone wall and fireboxes and moves the couple's existing fountain to the back corner. Gaura, hosta and sage spill over stacked bluestone walls, forming a romantic secret garden that's perfect for intimate dinners, daydreaming or even entertaining large groups. Beauty and function meet in the graceful raised garden beds where hidden drains divert run-off from the neighboring yards and layers of plants fill the space everywhere you look.
