Private Garden – Chicago, Illinois
Nestled in the historic Gold Coast neighborhood, this rear yard has great potential for outdoor entertaining. A small lower garden provides a private nook perfect for a small water feature and cafe table. The existing wall in this area was raised to provide added seclusion from the downstairs neighbor. An elegant bluestone and steel staircase leads up to a rooftop garden above the garage. A painted pergola defines the overhead canopy and lattice panels help to screen out views to the alley. With the fine detailing of interior cabinetry, built-in planters surround the space with lush plantings.
