By relocating their neighborhood road, our clients were able to gain much-needed space for gardening, outdoor recreation, and private family gatherings. A relocated antique cedar rail fence fronted by daylilies and backed with flowering shrubs give the new road an old and pleasant feel.
We expanded and relocated large beds of tough native perennials that had adapted to their site. A winding brick path and generous lawn paths from the cottage to the meadow gave the small garden landscape a spacious and flowing feel. The new streambed, created with truckloads of native stream boulders solves a seasonal drainage problem aesthetically as well as ecologically. The new vegetable garden and orchard are a great source of pleasure.
