The homeowner had a yard that was filled with overgrown, dying plants that were to high maintenance for him to keep alive. In the backyard, there was some erosion problems that caused portions of the patio to crumble. The design included low maintenance plants that added a splash of colorful throughout the year. Redirecting downspouts around the back patio solved erosion problems and brick edging was reinstalled. The design has been broken up into several phases and is still being installed.
