The homeowners had gotten tired of the yard and wanted a little makeover done. The solution started with removing overgrown plants and expanding the plantings beds. Next a new block wall edging was installed to provide clear definition of the planting beds and to help deal with the change in slope from house to lawn. Decorative gravel was placed around the downspouts to help prevent erosion. Lastly, low maintenance plants where planted that provide year round interest and color. Evergreen trees were planted around the patio to provide much needed privacy for the homeowner.
