Tag: front yard makeover

If you loved last week’s blog post about this home’s front yard landscaping remodel, then you’ll love the continuation with images from their back yard as well.  The property sits up high overlooking a green belt so their backyard view was already a great one, but they wanted to take it to the next level with stunning pool landscaping and a small green space area to create their own backyard oasis.  With plenty of seating scattered throughout and lush greens at all heights this back yard quickly became one of our favorites.  We envision leisurely days spent out there enjoying a glass of wine and relaxing!

The main bed that lines the pool is made up of pom pom junipers, liriope plants, zinnias, and esperanza.  The tall pots that sit on either side of the built in bed are filled with hibiscus for height, periwinkle and dianthus for color, and sweet potato ivy as the spillers hanging down creating that billowy look.

And you know no back yard landscaping is complete without bringing the plants up to the sitting area as well!  The pots that sit on the stairs are filled with hibiscus and sweet potato ivy as well for that cohesive look to mirror the pots on either side of the pool bed.  Now, no matter where you choose to sit, your views are always filled with flowers and happiness.

We never miss an opportunity to continue the lush plant life, so this garden path that leads to their front yard was no exception.  With a small flag stone walkway leading the way, we lined it with some simple gold tipped yews and birkwood holly plants.  The tall tree to the right is a Japanese Maple, and the smaller tree to the left in the raised bed is an Althea tree.    At the base of the Althea tree are beautiful orange new guinea impatiens.

Since the pool and patio take up the majority of their back yard we wanted them to still have some green space that was easy to maintain.  We installed synthetic turf so it extended the lush greens without the upkeep of having to mow, and it will look gorgeous and healthy year round.  We filled the raised beds that surround this space with a combination of twist of lime abelian, azaleas, and orange new guinea impatiens.

We are sharing another awesome client landscape remodel today!  I wish we had some more “before” shots to show you, because this one needed a lot of work, but you can get the idea from the one we do have.  When we pulled up to this gorgeous home, (in an amazing neighborhood) we couldn’t believe this is how bare the landscaping was.  The owners had just purchased the home, and for as stunning as the home was, it needed a landscape that matched it.  What it did have going for it, was the blank slate it provided, with little issues standing in our way of making it stand out.

First, although it was an interesting design choice, we felt a straightforward walkway was a better option with the lines and symmetry of the home.  The owners also decided to add an iron gate to create a small porch area where they could put a table and chairs while still having a little bit of privacy behind the planters.

To create the front beds that line the gate we used Mountain Laurel trees, Savannah Holly trees, twist of lime abelia, azaleas, love pedlums, baby gem boxwoods, liriope plants, althea trees, and dwarf golden yews.

We also added a set of window boxes to the upper balconies, to draw your eye up and extend the eye line of the greenery.   They can replace these annuals with each new season.  Right now they have Esperanza in them.

These sunshine ligustrum add a fun pop to break up the basic greens, and the oak leaf holly add height to provide variation to the bed.

These two pots sit at each side of the porch, creating a show stopping piece that can be filled each season with beautiful annuals. We like to create a couple of spaces in most of our landscape installs where this is possible, so you can update the colors each season, and always have something blooming year round.  This particular combination has hibiscus as the height, vincas, scaevola, and periwinkle mixed throughout.

We have another annual bed at the curb, as the entrance to the walkway, where we can plant coordinating color that will mirror what’s in the potters.  It’s a great way to tie all of the color together for a cohesive look.   This plant grouping is made up of periwinkle, ixora plant, kaleidoscope abelia, pentas.  Finally, lining the walkway is a layer of liriope plant on both sides.

We like to utilize the entire property when we are landscaping both the front and back yards, but more so in the front, so you create a giant frame for your home, showcasing it’s size and utilizing all your landscape has to offer.  Here we’ve created a bed that creates a full border from the neighbor’s and also hides an unsightly power box.  We used a Japanese maple tree, a holly tree, an althea tree.  The lower ground bushes are azaleas, and finally edged with liriope plants and a small pop of annuals for color.

We extended the bordering beds all the way to the garage and fence leading you to the back yard, as well as flanking the garage door with potters selling with sweet potato vines and hibiscus.  We topped off the right bed with holly trees and more sunshine ligustrum.

We have to brag on one of our favorite clients’ yards!  I know we say this about a lot of our clients (maybe because we are blessed to work with so many wonderful people), but this is truly one of our favorites.  When we took over this front yard it was a blank canvas.  There were a few flower beds present, but none that showcased how spectacular this lot is.  So we removed everything that was existing and started over from scratch.

We wanted each bed to be it’s own spotlight of beauty and visual delight.   We used varying heights, color and textures to draw the eye to every area of the yard.   From the moment you walk up the path you are greeted with cheerful pink hibiscus covering the ground.  The beds are flanked with two show stopping pots filled with pom pom juniper trees, purple scaevola, and pink and white vincas.  Layered behind the hibiscus are liriope ground covering.

As you move towards the entry gate, we used more layers, starting with liriope ground covering, mixed in colorful pentas, and flanked with two boxwood trees.

 

Moving to the left of the main gate is the far left bed.  The flowering althea tree is surrounded by encor azalea bushes (which will be filled with color in spring and fall), boxwood bushes behind them (closest to the house), a layer of sedum in front of the azaleas, and finished with the liriope ground covering lining the front.

In the far left front bed closest to the street, we added a few pink and purple angelonia next to the azaleas and liriope, for added color.

Moving on to the right side of the yard, we started the half curve bed with layers of jasmine, impatiens, caladiums, pentas and a gorgeous magenta crepe myrtle tree.  The variations of pinks, whites and purples throughout the yard really bring all of these beds together nicely.

And no space left undone, we planted a Japanese maple in the back corner where the tall boxwoods and oak trees provide privacy for the yard.  These maples will burst with color two times a year and add a splash of color to this spot.  All in all, we are so pleased with this front, bursting with major curb appeal.  Most importantly we are so happy when our clients trust our vision for their yards, the outcome is truly one they will love for years!
