The team transformed this backyard from mounds of dirt to a garden with a lush tropical feel.
There was no connection or entrance into the pool area.
A bluestone landing connects the pool to the terrace and creates beds for entrance plantings.
Arborvitae furnish a green privacy backdrop. Endless Summer Hydrangea bloom all season long and the Liriope edge provide a clean modern line.
The front yard was full of rocks and posion ivy.
The historic fence was restored. Climbing roses, Dwarf Rhododendrens, ground cover and hydrangeas greet guests.
A forlorn front walkway changes into an elegant entry.
Left, the new entry. Bluestone walk, Endless Summer Hydrangea and climbing roses(in progress) on original trellis. Right, the house circa 1920.
