Project Story: Welcome Home

BEFORE

AFTER

GOALS

Our client wanted a more functional front landing and walkway along with new plantings that created a cottage garden feel.

 

  • Design a more spacious front landing
  • Create an expanded and more welcoming front walkway
  • Use cottage garden inspired plant material
  • Expand the driveway for ease of navigating

Budget: $65,000

Services

  • Driveway renovation & re-design
  • Masonry front entrance & landing
  • Drainage
  • Plantings

APPROACH

The existing landing and stairs were uncomfortable upon entering & exiting the residence.  We designed a significantly larger bluestone walkway that is incorporated directly into the front door landing and driveway for easier access an open feel. 

Their existing driveway was misaligned and in need of renovation. A spur was expanded to hold two cars more comfortably with an easier turning radius. 

 

VIEW PLAN

PLANTING COMPONENTS

The existing plants were significantly aged.  We created a new “cottage” style courtyard using a diverse mix of perennials, deciduous and evergreen shrubs.  

RESULT

A beautiful and welcoming bluestone walkway adorned with colorful plantings, now invite you into this charming home. The plantings will bloom at different seasons, providing year-round interest and beauty.

WHAT THE CLIENT SAID
