The McGeady landscape and garden design takes its cues from the historic Irvington Neighborhood context and the grand classical revival style home.


Subtle details are key: brick-clad retaining walls; traditional herringbone pattern brick paths; bluestone terraces; and textural plantings. Three distinctive water features and strategic lighting bring the garden to life.


The sound of water is the focus of each

distinct garden room. Classic forms inspired the water features that were executed with a contemporary flair. The garden’s highlight is a reflecting pool and sculptural fountain wall constructed of large soapstone slabs with a sheet cascading water.


Creating private outdoor living space for an exposed corner lot was a key factor in the design. The fountains, walls and hedges serve as strategic visual and noise buffers to the street beyond.
