Before: A couple bought this 1919 Georgian-style home in Washington, D.C., during the pandemic. As part of their plan to overhaul the property, they hired the team at Joseph Richardson Landscape Architecture to create a master plan that would improve the yard’s function and style, and also honor the home’s age and architecture.

Part of the project’s goal was to improve the flow between outdoor spaces, including the split-level patio seen here, add privacy to the exposed corner lot and enhance the outdoor living features. To get a sense of their style, landscape architects Joseph Richardson and Adam Sexton reviewed photos the homeowners shared from Houzz. The pair could see that the homeowners liked a traditional, classic look.
