This project was a very unique project due to the extent of the existing issue and the challenge of the property due to smaller, compact size, almost full shade, and a struggling lawn and patio condition in need of remediation. We began by removing the existing weeds and overgrown vegetation in the yard and laid out the design proposed. The project features a raised 36" planter which contained flowering part shade perennials that could be elevated away from the family pup. Other features include a new Bristol Stone patio after previous brick was removed, a clean white gravel maintenance path edged with grey Belgian stone, and a dry-laid irregular flagstone sitting area. To finish it off, new landscape beds were installed with two Hydrangea and some Hosta under the existing shade trees. The beds were also edged with a grey Belgian Stone and a new fence section and gate were also installed for the customer.
