Our homeowner wanted an updated landscape throughout the property, a small paved space in which to relax, and a privacy barrier that wasn't just a row of trees. We started by creating a small patio using Belgard Mega Dublin pavers in Cotswold Mist with Weston Universal stone seat walls, also in Cotswold Mist, bordering the patio. This addition of seat walls created extra seating without sacrificing the gathering space. To create the privacy barrier, we planted Emerald Green Arborvitae, which will maintain the barrier throughout the entire year. The curvilinear landscape, edged with 12-gauge steel edging, created additional visual interest; it was filled with a mix of low maintenance perennials, shrubs, and trees, including Hydrangeas, Viburnums, ornamental grasses, Azaleas, Coneflowers, Alliums, Coreposis, Geranium, and Wild Indigo. Only basic maintenance will be required on this landscape: cutting back perennials in fall/spring, selective pruning on shrubbery, and filling the landscape bed with mushroom compost and premium mulch.
