Low water requirement, shade loving plants provide an easy maintenance and aesthetically pleasing look. After the removal of an overgrown juniper which encroached on the sidewalk, more appropriate plantings for the size of the space were added.

We focused on three goals on this project: curved bed lines, more color, and softer feel. We removed a lot of the rock, expanded the bed lines to have a soft fluid feel, and smart perennial placements to add color, texture, and screening. This front yard, although small, makes a huge impact.

The space next to the front porch felt too open and needed to have a more cozy feel. The Buckthorns provide a softness and a barrier encloses the porch with out making it feel too closed in. Adding the mockorange on the corner will provide a great fragrance in the spring while sitting and enjoying the afternoon.
