INSTALLING A FULL LANDSCAPE ON A NEW HOME
The front entrance planting design was influenced by the size restriction between the entrance and the driveway. The design goals were to achieve scale of planting for the height of the house, create an interesting plant combination, and include flowering plant material. A dwarf variety of blue spruce tree was selected to achieve height scale and compliment the blue shutters. Compact blue spruce planted on either side of the walkway adds balance for the blue spruce tree. Small leaf evergreen azaela and rhododendron provides plant balance on either side of the walkway. A chamaecyparis is planted in the corner opposite the blue spruce tree. Hydrangea paniculata provides the flowering component. The landscape design creates an interesting combination of texture, tone, and shape in a relatively small space.
BEFORE: A new home requiring landscape from rough grade to finish landscape from the roadway to the front entrance.
AFTER: Driveway layout, granite lamp post with accenting boulder and evergreen, boulder retaining wall on left side drive, oyster shell parking area.
