Here's what's on the drafting board....
Front yard Rejuvenation
These new home owners moved in a year ago. They wanted perennial color and more than an evergreen hedge. Some privacy was needed as well as the desire to address the tree roots and poor lawn from a large Maple. We plan to remove the privet hedge and replace with trellises, boxwood and compact lilacs. The anchor of the garden in the winter will be boxwood. Perennials and flowering shrubs add seasonal interest. Parts of this will be a DIY install. We developed a two year installation plan, because time, energy and money don't grow on trees.
PROPOSED PLANTING PLAN
Back Yard Update
No job is too small and just a few changes will make this back yard a beautiful space for the family's upcoming graduation party. The challenge here were the Maple tree roots and deer. The best time to plan is in the winter so you can secure landscapers in the spring. Below are the before pictures and the concept plans.
FRONT YARD RENOVATION
Clients reworked front steps and built a wall which left a blank slate. Their goals: simple, easy to maintain, challenging shade and reuse plants they saved.
This Sewickley home needed an update. The owners were DIYers, so we had fun collaborating on this design. They desired a more modern look.
