RENOVATING A SMALL SITE
This property was a small site that needed a total landscape renovation. The entire site had artificial turf or 6” deep red mulch with poly tarps under the entire site. About two dozen yews were successfully transplanted. The site was graded to achieve a more level area. This project still needs more plantings before completion.
As seen in the above photos, this property had multiple yews planted in front of the house, along the front walkway and around the seating area on the side of the house. Red mulch covered the front of the house and artificial grass carpet covered the seating area inside the fenced in area.
An excavator dug up all of the yews to be later transplanted. The 6-8” of red mulch was removed, as was the 4-6” of stone dust under the artificial grass carpet. All of the poly tarps were dug up and removed.
After – the patio area was pea stone bordered with cobblestones.
There was a total transformation of this small site landscape. All of the yews were successfully transplanted, positioned as they were originally to avoid bare spots. Loam/compost depth of 6” was installed under the new sod lawn. The project will be completed with the installation of flowering shrubs, privacy plantings, and perennial gardens.
