Landscape architect Christian Brown's plan offers a touch of formality to the yard. Three steps below a bluestone dining patio is a casual patio, flanked with two shade trees. To link the three structures on the property, a crushed gravel path would come off the bluestone patio and lead to the garage and potting shed. A simple plant palette — including coral bells, dwarf fountain grass and boxwood hedges — would provide a uniform look. A large pottery vessel would house a water feature. Finally, a small fieldstone patio with a bench overlooks the creek.
