Mid-Century Landscape Renovation - Worthington, OH

This mid-century home is in Rush Creek Village, a Usonian style community inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright & designed by Ted van Fossen. Our clients priority was that the landscape design be sympathetic to the distinctive architecture of the home while updating the landscape for modern day living. They had removed a large dying tree near the original patio so we were given the opportunity to expand the patio space and design new steps down to an expanded lower patio. Concrete was chosen for the main paving material but we mixed in "highlights" of bluestone throughout. The main patio was designed around a new outdoor fireplace (to mimic the one inside the home) as well as a swim spa.

All new plant beds were designed around the patio spaces along with new privacy plantings along the lot line. We also designed new landscaping around the driveway entrance, replacing original/ overgrown junipers. Simple plantings were designed on the back side of the home where a grade change limits the amount of space. Timber retaining walls and steps had already been installed by our client in this area. Low voltage landscape lighting completes the design. Scheduled for installation in 2024 - check back for photos!
