When Architect Herm Weber moved into this house at 4th and Pittsburgh in 1999, he called to discuss options for improving the landscape for the home. The structure is atypical for our area, an atrium house, very inward focusing with lots of light and air and generally good privacy. A window wall on the north required heavier landscape screening towards 4th street.
As the structure was contemporary the landscape required a slightly different treatment to match the strength and elegance of the home. There were already some good plant materials on sight such as the katsura tree on the NE corner. The beds of pachysandra and mass plantings drew out the lines of the house and helped to keep the maintenance low. The atrium courtyard had a contemplative feel.
