Bright spots in the shade

GALA distinction award winner
Floralis Garden Design

The landscape at the residence is simple, clean-lined, and mainly evergreen.  The container plantings are meant to accent the landscape, add seasonal color and interest, bring brightness to shade-filled areas of the landscape, and highlight areas of interest throughout the property.

This Seasonal Container project is not only managed and maintained by our firm, but we have also designed and installed the permanent and seasonal container plantings. We perform weekly maintenance visits in which we prune, deadhead, fertilize, and supplement the container plantings.  Additionally, we regulate watering portions for the containers, supplementing with hand-watering when needed during the hot summer months.

Containers flank the rear garden entry gates to add a welcoming touch and to soften the junction of the driveway and rear garden terrace.

Additionally, we perform extra maintenance visits and complete special event arrangements for the interior and exterior of the home when parties or company is expected at the home. Above is a shot of a cut-flower arrangement, one of several that were completed for an outdoor early summer garden party.
