To reenvision the overgrown, outdated plant material »
- Removed overgrown plants and replace them with plants that will grow the appropriate size in the space provided for them without as much maintenance
- Created a cohesive plant pallet with plants that bloom at various times and provide winter interest
To cut down on water usage »
- We redrew sod bedlines to make more planting space for low-water plants while keeping enough grass for the dog play area
To keep the view to the reservoir but create privacy from neighbors »
- Kept the plants lower along the back fence to keep the views across the field to the reservoir and provide narrow, upright evergreen and deciduous plants that will create a screen from the neighbors for more privacy
To add places to grow vegetables »
- Instead of providing a large designated space for vegetables, we incorporated raised beds within the shrub borders to provide various different annual growing beds. This creates different microclimates that allow the homeowners to try out different varieties of annual edible plants.
