Case Study #1

OBJECTIVE: Being a new home purchase, this client wanted to update the look and personalize the landscape. Adding curb appeal and screening was on the list of things to do.

SOLUTION: Adding a walkway from the main point of access, the driveway, to the front door was key for easy access for guests. Adding height with narrow trees and utilizing material for small spaces provided a multi-seasonal, colorful garden with plants that fit their space. Incorporating a small fire pit extends the outdoor season in the fall for added enjoyment.

Case Study #2:

OBJECTIVE: This client intended on renovating their entire landscape. The goal was to add a “Japanese Garden” flare to the plan. Since the client has allergies and works long hours, they wanted a “low-maintenance” landscape solution offering long-blooming plants that attract birds and butterflies, while adding peace and serenity to the garden.

SOLUTION: Creating a plan using right angles provided formal structure to the garden while using plantings that softened the sharp edges. Adding multiple trees, evergreens, perennials, and shrubs provides interest to the garden and is pleasing to the eye. Groundcovers are hard at work covering the ground to prevent weeds. A drip irrigation system addresses watering needs so the plants can thrive without a lot of attention from the client leaving them time to enjoy their summer!

Case Study #3

OBJECTIVE: This suburban back yard is very shady and there is a 6′ slope draining away from the house. The client indicated they couldn’t get grass to grow under the shade of the trees leaving bare soil. When it rained, the dog would get muddy paws and they were looking for something more aesthetically pleasing.

SOLUTION: Since grass does not grow under Norway Maple and Oak trees, creating a woodland garden with walking paths was the perfect solution. This low maintenance woodland garden offers a variety of shade loving evergreens, shrubs, perennials, and groundcovers that help crowd out weeds and harmonize with their natural surroundings.
