Wide appeal in narrow space

Unique Environmental Landscapes

Maximum outdoor living. This small in-town yard (a little over 2000 sq. ft.) did nothing for the homeowner as far as usability and entertainment.

Small space, big entrance

Driveway and plantings enhance the entrance of the home. Given the limited in-ground space allowed, this small scale in town project demonstrates a deliberate, careful choice of plant material to both soften and complement the architecture. The texture was prioritized over color, maturity over volume, and less over more. The owner’s objectives were to create…
