We love tackling landscape jobs on new home builds. Starting with that blank slate allows us the opportunity to give the client their vision. This back yard project was on a modern home that wanted clean simple lines to coordinate with the house’s design aesthetic.
In this bed we planted a Rising Sun Red Bud tree to the far left that will grow to be about 12-15 feet in height. Centered is a tall planter that’s filled with Hibiscus for height, anchored by red Geraniums and filled in with Million Bell flowers and hanging Ivy. The ground covering we used a Lemon Sedum plant, and behind those are Carissa Holly shrubs.
In this picture, the tree that hides the gray wall box is a Sunshine Ligustrum.
In this particularly project we were excited to bring in a favorite vendor that we love working alongside. Jeff Kern Designs installs artificial turf as an alternative to grass which carried out the modernity for this home even further.
On the other side of their yard we built a similar bed and added in Magnolia trees that will grow in height to create a screen from their neighbor’s yard. We continued over with Lemon Sedum, Carissa Holly shrubs, geraniums and Sunshine Ligustrum.
For added decoration we filtered boulders within the bed.
These cheery yellow flowers sprinkled in are Gaillardia, a genus of flowering plants in the sunflower family. This perennial has a long season of bloom, and is used as a blanket flower. The daisy-like flowers are produced from early summer to early fall in shades of orange, red and yellow, adding sizzle to the garden and attracting nectar-seeking butterflies.
