Description:This new home on a corner lot was exposed on 3 sides, providing a near ‘blank’ canvas on which to create a lush, natural garden that extends the living areas into the outdoor environment. The native planting scheme surrounds the new patio, fieldstone seat walls and dry creek bed, invite a variety of wildlife. The new trees draw the interior views into the garden, screening the neighboring structures and the street. The new Redbuds (the client’s favorite) offer gorgeous spring color, filtered summer shade, handsome fall foliage, and an elegant winter form. The new streambed turns a uniform utility into a natural form, mimicking nature's textural solution to storm water management.
