LEED Landscape

  • Two mature Japanese maples were preserved. (photo Andrew Lightman)

  • Landscape rendering: Cheryl Corson Design

  • Late spring native plants in bloom

  • Coral bells blooming in a tight space. Path lights are subtle yet effective.

  • Yellow Coreopsis are atttractive and keep pedestrians away from the automatic sliding parking gate, while a paving color change leads to the back door.

  • It's a pato and a parking lot for two cars. Paving pattern rotates 90 degrees to break up the space.

  • Storm drains are integrated into the contrasting paving. The pervious pavers soak up stormwater, though the green roof above retains much of the rain. The sliding automatic parking gate and pedestrian door offer privacy from the street.

  • Plantings along the narrow street include native ferns, witchazel, and Itea, or Sweetspire. (photo: Andrew Lightman)

This former residence was vacant for ten years, then completely renovated inside and out. Located close to the U.S. Capitol, an organization planned to use it for political meetings and events. Designed to be LEED silver compliant, the landscape features pervious paving, native plants, and solar powered LED lighting. A patio doubles as parking for two cars.
