A Design Team Transforms a Georgetown Rowhouse

H&DHome & Design features Landscape Architect J. Mark White of GardenWise, Inc. who transformed the previously ignored Georgetwon space into a Zen garden, another bridge to Morris’s fascination with the East and an extension of the home’s interior.  She enjoys meals at a table under a bamboo-topped pergola, which canopies a mother-of-pearl lantern, while an oversized ceramic vase turned into a gurgling fountain encourages visitors to just sit and relax.  White also combined plants typical of the traditional English garden – such as the climbing rose on the arbor – with elements of the Japanese style garden, including the pergola made of stone and cedar and topped with bamboo.
