Sometimes you get so used to looking at the same thing each day, it doesn’t occur to you that you could potentially make it even better! This client had a lovely, huge backyard and pool area, but was losing space and visual of it all with the way their landscaping was designed. They had a small dining set in the middle of their walkway impeding foot traffic, and bushes that were overgrown and not really providing much in the design department. With the height and width of the bushes you couldn’t see the large grass run behind it.
Their covered outdoor dining area was also being flanked by two beds that were filled with towering overgrown bushes, blocking the view of the pool and yard from inside of it. Our goal was to give them a simple redesign that would allow them to open up their walk way, regain their sight lines of the yard and spruce up the plant life to create a more serene and happy landscape.
We started by tearing out all of the existing bushes, shrubbery and tree to the right. Then we laid a small flagstone area inside the garden bed area for their cafe style table and chairs. This way the dining space would sit inside the landscaping, clearing up the walkway and providing a charming focal point. We used their existing garden decor and fountain and added some Lemon Joy Sedum, Foxtail Ferns, Twist of Lime Abelia, and Ever Red Lorepetulum. In the next few weeks when the Spring perennials are ready for planting we can update with even more.
Then over by the covered dining patio, we replaced the existing shrubs with the same coordinating plants. We brought in a couple of potters to bring in a design element and allow for a little height and layering. Now you can see in and out of the dining area, watching the grand kids, friends and family enjoy the joys of outdoor time! A simple fix that really cleans up the space and allows for more togetherness.
