I know, I know, it’s been too long since I posted. Between weddings, earthquakes, and hurricanes, it’s been an interesting end to summer. We have much to look forward to and plan for come fall, but more on that later. For now, please accept my humble apologies and this, our first video embedded post! I’m getting extra fancy these days!
I wanted to share this update on the garden in Waltham, MA that we created last season. You may remember reading about the project in the initial post, but for those of you who missed it, we had a client who strongly disliked their front yard – a small plot of grass and the obligatory shrubbery along the front of the house. They hated mowing, the stagnant look of the shrubs, and the lack of color.
Nothing’s worse than disliking your living space, so we suggested they do away with the lawn all together, add a radial patio, and a low maintenance garden. The entire design was centered around their desire for a semi-private space that looked great all season long. The plantings were designed so the garden has color at all times – vibrant purples and soft white tones.
This season we came in to install a stone pathway leading through the garden and to spread new mulch. I took the opportunity to document just how much the plants had grown since last season. The difference is amazing, even to us!
Check out this rudimentary video yours truly made to showcase the transformation!
