The fountain is a vintage bronze plated ornament that dribbles a small stream of water to a stone pool. The pool and terrace look like they've been there for a long time, which was the goal from day one. "The design fits the home and property. I couldn't be happier," said Dziurdzik. The kitchen, adjacent to the sunken dining terrace, was designed with commercial appliances and ample layout space to serve either small family dinners or large family gatherings. A large hardwood pergola with custom beams and steel joinery defines the kitchen. Lighting fixtures were studied and eventually selected for indirect light qualities surrounding the pergola and stonewalls. The dining terrace greets a visitor entering the pool terrace and offers a glimpse of the gardens beyond. Designs for a kitchen garden were drawn but simplified to include an apple tree espalier. This tree has become one of the owner's favorites. The drawing shows the layout of the limestone plank pavers through the upper pool terrace, with the pergola, dining and outdoor kitchen area (right), and the lower terrace (left) with a seating area around a fire pit. 50 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Ohio buckeye (Aesculus glabra) Fountain Grass Joe Pye weed Pickerelweed (Pontederia Cordata) Sneezeweed
