A lovely older home is surrounded by mixed gardens providing season long color.
This view from the apple tree bed shows parts of many of the gardens on the site.
A bluestone patio with a small planting bed and limestone walls complements the blue-green house and is accented by red Adirondack Chairs.
The hill was moved back from the house and deck and retained by a boulder wall planted with a variety of perennials and shrubs.
Limestone steps lead into the upper yard, vegetable garden, and play area.
The plantings in this bed soften the effect of an exisitng block wall. Native plants, other perennials and shrubs provide continuous color and texture. The hemlock trees anchor the bed to the slope. Cobble stones slow the water as it runs off the hill.
A cobble patio with fire pit provides a restful spot to look upon the native plantings and bird feeders behind the house.
These homeowners wanted an alternative to the usual foundation plants. A mixture of mainly native plants matches the modern architecture influenced by Prairie style.
In this view the red accent on the house is echoed in the planting and garden art.
This new entry garden design for a completely remodeled house includes roses, perennials, shrubs and roses.
