A finished project

Posted on by Anne Cox

This Spring we tackled a redesign of a landscape. Jon Smith of Rockers brought in boulders and did the earthwork for us, we moved shrubs, removed shrubs, added plants. While the plantings are still new and will take a few years to settle in and fill out, the bones are in place.cady before 1cady after 1

One of the issues we worked to address was how first time visitors to the property will know which door to go to. Time will tell if we got that right, but at least the port couchere is no longer obscured by shrubs.cady before 3cady after 3

The view looking back through the port couchere has changed as well.

Looking over the wall surrounding the shade garden patio, we moved shrubs so we could open up the long view.

The sunken garden, as seen from the patio/porch area has a different backdrop now.
