This project in particular is special to me due to the unique and extreme transformation of the space I was tasked to redesign. The hardworking homeowner was often not home to maintain or use the backyard space so it grew into an overgrown forest of weeds and vines, etc. I designed a functional space including a small patio, raised wooden planter box, small 6x6' flagstone sitting area for a bistro table, and a maintenance path made from clean white gravel and re-used Belgian stone edge. The wooden planter box was able to elevate the flowering perennials to prevent the dog's access. Some new beds were reworked to encapsulate the existing trees as well as a few new hostas and two hydrangea shrubs. We were also able to replace the fence and gate which granted access from the driveway and into the backyard.
