The Terry Residence is a single family residential project located in an established neighborhood in St. Louis. The clients requested planting redesign integrated with mature plantings in the front yard; and useable patio and yard space at the back of the residence. Concept plans were developed to accommodate present and future needs of the client. The existing patio space was removed and replaced with a recessed brick patio area which was delineated with an arbor, fireplace and sitting wall. Level areas were created in the yard with excavated soils from construction and lower retaining walls. These clients enjoy entertaining and were pleased with the addition of an outdoor living area. This project was completed in 2010.
