The Wow Factor Design

The clients wanted a design that would stand out in their neighborhood, and that would have year round interest.  To achieve this, I ended up using several specimen plants, including two large ornamental cherry trees that will serve as a focal point and catch the eye of anyone driving up to the home.

The Add Some Edibles Design

For this design, the client wanted a flower garden that also included edibles. Flowers blooming spring through fall were important, as were a few show piece plants.  The client also wanted a work area, a fountain, and a patio/pergola area where she could relax with friends and family. Because the garden is in a heavily deer-trafficked area, the client opted to use edible herbs, some of which will be used for cooking, while others will be allowed to go to flower to support pollinators.

The Re-Do The Patio Design

This project involved re-designing an existing patio space for a client who loved to cook and entertain. After visiting with the client and touring her property, I suggested placing raised beds around an existing patio area, and creating a raised, circular herb garden in the center.  This would allow her to easily access vegetables and herbs while cooking, and added visual interest when she entertained guests.

The Fill The Yard With Flowers Design

The clients requested an update to their existing design, which only included a garden bed at the front of their home and around their mailbox.  They particularly wanted beds on both sides of their front yard sidewalk, on either side of their driveway, and around a deck in the backyard.  Priorities included fragrant flowers, roses, and cut flowers.
