We Did
These homeowner's envisioned a welcoming front yard that incorporated their Greene & Greene Architectural style from inside their home to the outside. Our design took into consideration this turn of the century American Arts and Crafts inspiration and included a unique opportunity for the homeowners to incorporate their signature wood-working skills and garden expertise. This front yard design included the creation of a dry creek bed and rock drainage swale to remove runoff away from the house; large rock placement and mound plantings to mimic natural sandbars within the creek and the installation of cedar steps to invite visitors in (with client created and installed pergola and bridge). We are so pleased with how beautiful this project is and are enjoying watching it transform as the native grass seed takes root and the homeowners continue to add more plant material over the summer.
