October 2018 75 Chesapeake Bay Residence Annapolis, Md. With the house sitting 40 feet above the bay, this site in Annapolis was calling for a negative-edge pool. The pool was elevated 24 inches, creating two levels to this flat space as well as adding visual interest and seating for large parties. Two custom water bowls framed the end of the negative edge creating the sound of falling water. Next to the diving board, a raised sun terrace was put in place. The large expanse of hardscape was softened by the use of colorful shrubs and perennials to provide year round interest. Spa View Circle Residence Annapolis, Md. The Spa View Residence is located on Spa Creek in downtown Annapolis. The goal for this project was to enhance the beauty of this stunning home when viewed from the water, as well as, allow the homeowner a private area with a spectacular view of the creek from the veranda. A mature landscape combines with a simple color pallet and a modest selection of plants to create an intimate and secluded outdoor living space. The installed seasonal annuals not only provide visual interest but also help to create a sense of space on the large veranda.
