Commercial Landscape Installation (Design/Build)

Grand Award

American University

Sue's Garden

This project was made possible by a gift to American University's Arboretum and Garden. The university landscape architect worked closely with the donor to transform this small site that is surrounded by roadway and parking into an intimate gathering spot to be enjoyed by students and faculty. The inward center focus on the water feature and the composition of new perimeter plantings arranged under the canopies of the existing trees help give the garden a sense of solitude.
