Forest Hills Exuberant Garden

Washington, DC

A complex series of walls, terraces, and steps enhance the existing retaining system supporting the property’s severe slope, creating a perfect canvas for lush, plant textures and cascading blooms. The stormwater mitigation design in combination with the redesigned retaining walls provides welcome usable space for the lawn and children’s play area.
