Harbour Square centers on an extensive water garden.
There is also a woodlands garden which is surrounded by a loge which connects the water garden elevation to the "English" garden elevation.
We discussed what to do with the "English" garden. As a compromise with blowback from the wholesale destruction of this historic neighborhood, Smith incorporated Wheat Row and two other Federalist houses in the Harbour Square development, hence an "English" garden.
We then went to the roof to see a private rose garden and enjoy the spectacular views of Washington and the Potomac Valley. DC became magical as the sun set and the lights came on.
