Everyone should have a place in their garden where they can sit and think. For this project we incorporated a bench and a small strip garden as an addition to the raspberry patch in the background. The gardener is able to still access the hose and planting area, while also now having a place to sit and relax when the chores of the day are complete.
This area was hot, dry, and sloped - it was difficult to grow any grass and even more difficult to mow. By filling it with drought tolerant perennials that bloom at different times of year, as well as tall ornamental grasses, we turned this otherwise frustrating section of yard into a pollinator paradise that offers interest and value year round.
Planters don't need to be limited to annuals in full sun. For this client we helped design and install a pair of planters filled with shade perennials that flower and attract pollinators. The pair sit in a shady area on the back steps of a deck, providing color and interest to a part of the yard that would otherwise be forgotten.
This formal entrance was missing it's finishing touch. We identified a mixture of native and nonnative plants that would provide color, texture, and fragrance to guests when they first approach the home. Special attention had to be paid to the plant heights so they did not take away from the dramatic effect of the fountain.
Everyone knows first impressions are important. An underused strip that separated the front walkway and driveway of a home was an ideal location for a garden that attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Now visitors are welcomed with the sights, sounds, and smells of this pollinator garden whenever they stop by.
A steep hill is no place for grass. Our clients challenged us to take a large hill and turn it into a garden that mimics the colors and textures of the American southwest, while also leaving a space for a children's slide. By designing with color, texture, and fragrance, this garden is now the backdrop for dinner parties and play dates.
