Innovative front yard softscape
Re-imagining usable land
This client wanted their crow damaged lawn to be removed and replaced with a more innovative and creative arrangement. We proposed a composition that would utilize a "block planting" scheme featuring ornamental grasses - a client favorite - and arranged in a way which would highlight texture, color and movement.
During the transformation process an old tree in front of the entry area was removed, the original brick planter was rehabilitated and cleaned, and a "bench" to host a horizontal feature tree was coaxed from the natural slope with some minor re-grading. The result surpassed the client's expectations by far!
The client decided to innovate & chose to remove the turf & install alternative block planting
