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.

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.
Check back next month for updates...
This yard has several acres and we are working on it in stages. This year's focus is address water springs and seeps that cause erosion and no grass to grow. Current concepts include drains and a dry river rock garden to direct water flow.
These homeowners have lived here over 20 years. Plants have died. A heard of 15 deer ate many plants. This year we are focusing on the entrance, hillside, and pool area. They installed a lovely pool, firepit and now we will plant the many beds to create a summer retreat.
I have been asked to update this lovely city home. The fence needs to be replaced and we plan to keep the lovely arbor.
