When you visit this garden, you'll witness the results of a complete redesign. Most of the existing plants dated to the early 1970s when the house was built, so the entire landscape on the front and side yards were eliminated to make way for a fresh new look.
The land in the front yard responded perfectly to having an outdoor seating arrangement, given that the back yard was a full story below the main living area and the street traffic is minimal. By maximizing the landscape in the front yard, the homeowners can enjoy their new look as they come and go each day. The land was elevated with a stone wall, and a beautiful, woody and perennial garden was placed on top of the wall to establish a break from the public space. This provides a cozy, attractive interior space with a terrace and flat lawn area for recreation and play for the young children who live in the home.
The landscape is designed in such a way that maximizes privacy, allocating the more intensive care areas to the perimeter of the property. This type of design allows for maximum visual enjoyment of the landscape from both the private and public domain.
