Creating a Cascading Stream on a Hillside
We were excited to create a stone stream and reading nook for this homeowner. We created a cascading stream on the hillside that emptied into a pond. Next to the pond, we built an irregular flagstone patio where they can relax, read and listen to the flowing water. Shrubs, perennials, and bulbs were added to further naturalize the area. See this project.
Removing Shrubs & Pachysandra to Create a New Sitting Area
We were excited to turn this overgrown area into a beautiful outdoor oasis. We removed the old pachysandra and old sheared shrubs and replaced them with flagstone, flowering dogwoods, rhododendron, and cherry laurel. See this project.
Removing a Dead Tree and Adding a Flowerbed
We were excited to return to the home of one of our repeat clients. They had a large tree that had been dead for some time. We removed the tree and replaced it with a flower bed lined with boulderetes and filled with shrubs, perennials, and bulbs for year-round color. See this project.
Replacing an Overgrown Garden With Native Plants
This client originally called us to restore a flagstone walkway that had been disturbed from a gas line installation. We removed old overgrown shrubs, restored the flagstone walkway, and planted a fragrant native Magnolia, smaller dwarf shrubs, and some perennials and bulbs. See this project.
Japanese Maple Anchored by Native Plants and a Pathway
This couple was tired of their existing yard. We used their only request, that we include a Japanese Maple, to anchor the rest of our design. It features native shrubs, and a pathway to their AC unit, concealed by custom fencing that provided a perfect spot to hang their hose. See this project.
A Rockery Provides a Perfect Planting Nook for These Berwyn Homeowners
By using a combination of smaller boulders and squarer rock we created a retainer/rockery with nooks and crannies where smaller shrubs and perennials could be planted. See this project.
Creating a Soothing Oasis for a Client in Malvern
After cleaning up the overgrown weeds on the border of the existing brick patio, we replanted with site-appropriate shrubs and perennials. For the water feature, we used the existing timber retaining wall as a backdrop and to give height for the cascading waterfall and excavated for the pond. See this project. See this project.
Retaining Wall Featuring a Garden With Year-Round Color
One of the most important elements of a garden is that it maintains color all throughout the year. The key is to choose native plants with complementary growing seasons and give them room to grow. For these homeowners, we also constructed a boulder retainer with a step way leading through the garden. See this project.
A Flagstone Walkway Passes Through a Charming Garden of Native Plants
We made a number of updates to this property in Wayne. We added a dry-laid stone wall made of Colonial Wall Stone, planted a garden, and designed a stepping stone pathway with gapped flagstones leading to the bench. The front walk leading to this area is a pattern flagstone walkway.
A Retaining Wall Creates a Pleasing Border Where Patio Meets Yard
This natural boulder wall functions as a retaining wall, maintaining the patio that tucks itself beneath the rest of the backyard. The space where the top of the wall meets the lawn is a great home for a garden of native perennials.
