The goal of the design for this project was to transform the suburban ‘cookie cutter’ backyard into a natural retreat.
A new edge was added between the lawn and shrub beds creating a design on the ground plane. Then a variety of trees, shrubs, grasses and perennials were added to the beds to provide texture, color and interest in all seasons.
A sundial was included in the bed along the property line as a focal point to ‘catch the eye’, and a water feature was added near the patio to provide ‘close in’ interest and the sound of water.
The end result is an outdoor retreat that the owner’s can enjoy year round.
