French Living
Great Falls, VA

This project was a complete interior and exterior renovation of a grand Great Falls estate that needed some tlc. The client wanted us to bring new life to the entire property, including a new entrance drive, front entry, completely renovated pool and pool deck, firepit, walkways and steps, retaining walls, plantings, and outdoor lighting. The client wanted a French-style outdoor living and had us focus on color pallets and materials that would bring that to life. The project was unique because of the amount of travertine that we had custom manufactured for the client.

Georgian
Alexandria, VA

We were hired as the design/build contractor for the complete outdoor environment of this new custom residential project located on the Potomac river in Alexandria. The owner put meticulous attention in the details of this Georgian estate to ensure its authenticity to the historic area in which he was building his dream home. The front of the project consisted of a new entrance and drive, a front entry portico (which was hand-carved out of French limestone and imported from France) and a large cobblestone auto-court. The rear included a raised terrace, swimming pool, firepit, lawn steps, and planter walls. We also installed many large trees and substantial plantings and designed and built a comprehensive drainage plan for the entire property.

Modern
Alexandria, VA

As the design/build contractor on this project, we were tasked in creating a modern outdoor environment in the city of Alexandria. The client wanted a lot of defined spaces in which to entertain as well as space for his children to play. On the client's wish list were an outdoor kitchen with dining space, a patio with fire pit, water features, and screening his garage and some of his neighbors from view. We used various natural elements to define the space and to give him the modern design he was seeking.
