Number four on clothing designer Sara Campbell’s summer bucket list was to plant a garden.
After selling off a chunk of her and her husband Ken's large backyard, they found themselves staring through the kitchen windows, at a very large new house and fence. Sara was devastated that the builder had ripped out her roses, hydrangea, Japanese Maple, and broken the wings off her beautiful stone angel. Ken was determined to make it right. After many design meetings with the couple, the Faithful Flowers team set to work.
Faithful Flowers, remembered what the garden had looked like. The goal was to bring back the best parts. We sourced an amazing Viridis Japanese Maple to serve as a focal point, and covered the fence with an evergreen screen. We then built a new bluestone firepit and surrounded it with lovely Blue Hydrangeas, Hostas, Astilbe and ferns. Sara even got a mini birch grove and a nook to grow her pale pink heirloom roses. Ken got his wish of more greenspace to view and for his dogs to run. The broken Angel was returned to a special place in the new garden next to the Japanese maple and weeping Katsura.
