These are photos of a project that we installed two years ago. The main thing I want to illustrate to you with these pictures is how a lot of the color is pulled away from the house and the “foundation” plantings have been kept very simple and clean. I think it is very important for the house to be able to show off it’s architecture. I try to keep a light hand near the house typically focusing on evergreens near the house. This makes sure that your structural plantings are doing their job of grounding the house year round while still allowing the architecture to stand on it’s own while working with it’s lines. I have designed everything on the outside from the drive and walks to lighting and plantings. There is a before shot included below so you can see what we were working with when the project started.
