Show and Tell: Tea Party Terrace

I've been sketching up a storm lately and just had to share this one.  We decided to go ahead with the other design, so this one will just live in my mind for the time being.  The privacy screens have frosted glass panels and open spaces to allow for light, but to obstruct the view of neighboring houses.  The dry-laid stone terrace has Armeria maritima popping through the spaces and Penstemons, grasses and succulents create a colorful border.  Anyone for a tea party?


  1. I think a tea party sounds lovely. I like the idea of using frosted glass. Much less imposing than other solid materials, but still achieving a sense of privacy.

  2. That looks like fun! I hope the other design is equally enticing ;->

  3. Thanks, ladies! The other design involves an endless lap pool, which I'm really excited about with an art-piece screen at one end and planting beds surrounding. Fun!
