Grand Gardens in the City

Guilford, Maryland

“This is a place that I enjoy returning to again and again. There is always something new and exciting happening and growing in the gardens. It is a pleasure to work with clients who have such a passion for the landscape.”

—Jack Leonard, JGL Design

Elegant outdoor rooms for all aspects of grand urban living.


Client Program

Design and Results

A series of garden rooms reflect the character of the house and integrate with its interior flow and function.

Plantings reflect the character and function of each garden room and create the walls and doorways which both separate and connect the rooms.

Lighting illuminates the garden rooms, accents plantings and statuary, highlights the house and arbors, and brightens pool, patio, bar and walk areas.
