Creating Low-Maintenance Gardens for Lasting Beauty in Radnor
This client had recently moved into her “retirement home” and wanted to re-do and add on to the plantings for continual interest and beauty. There were many areas to clean up and remove years of weeds and neglect. Once that was done, new areas were established for new beds & bio-soil and boulderettes were brought in for contrast & retaining purposes. See this project.

New Garden, Pathway & Step Way
At this couple’s house in Easttown Township, we worked in the front and rear. Out front, we enlarged the bedded area to embrace the front walkway and to be more proportionate with the large covered porch. In the rear, we enlarged the beds around the patio, created pathways to the lawn and made a step way/walkway to the patio from the driveway. See this project.
Creating a Flagstone Pathway
We were happy to help create a welcoming entryway for this homeowner. We created an irregular flagstone pathway through the space. We then brought in soil to augment the hardpan rocky area while adding rocks/boulderettes. Lastly, we added Rhododendron, Cherry Laurel, and Ferns to create a woodsy environment. Check it out.
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.

Japanese Maple Anchored by Native Plants and a Pathway

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

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.
