Landscape renovation

GALA distinction award winner

Landscape is transformed in stages.

After purchasing this hidden gem in a prominent Atlanta community, the owners wanted to remodel the outside of the home in phases. This allowed for stretching the budget and keeping some of the plants that wouldn’t get overgrown again for many years.

Since the property hadn’t been lived in for several years, the landscape needed attention. Corrective pruning to some of the plants was initially performed.

The front yard saw the most changes with thinning of unhealthy and overgrown trees along with the addition of extensive ground-layer plant material. Raising the canopy and thinning older trees also opened the front and allowed the addition of more colorful shrubs and perennial plantings. The “row” of plants that touch the front of the home were pruned hard the first year which allowed us to gain the trust of the homeowner.

Container gardens were designed and installed to soften the hard surfaces, accentuate the outdoor spaces in front and back, and draw the eye to key spots.
