Davidsonville and Edgewater

Outdoor Living Theme Ideas

Possible outdoor living theme ideas for Davidsonville and Edgewater would include farm life because of local agriculture, golf, colonial history, sailing and boating, the South River and sports themes associated with Washington D.C. like the Redskins, Nationals, and D.C. United. The design of decks, fences, pergolas, arbors, and landscaping can be motivated by a desire for water views, views of farmland or the need for privacy because of the lack of natural boundaries like woods or hills.

Historic Theme for your Outdoor Space

Local history can influence the design of your outdoor structures. We can replicate the look and feel of well-known properties, such as Edgewater’s London Town and Davidsonville’s Mount Airy. Annapolis historic homes just across the South River can also influence a colonial or Early American design theme. Please ask us to recreate historic architectural details that appeal to you.

It is likely that you will not want to build a red brick mansion in your backyard, but we can mimic the colors, shapes, stone and masonry that brings us to a colonial feeling. Do you have a favorite historic home? Please take photos for us during your next visit. Once again, the home decor that is chosen for this space will have a huge effect. It could be that your sunroom will have pillars and a traditional mantle and fireplace. A porch may be constructed of stained wood to complement historical artifacts and antiques. Rocking chairs, settees, and dining chairs with styles such as Continuous Arm, Sack Back, Comb Back, and Bowback are key to creating a colonial environment. It may be the ambiance of an old tavern that motivates the look of the space we create together. Annapolis and Anne Arundel County are full of notable historic properties and it would be fun to pick one to emulate.

London Town Publik House on the South River. Cheers!
