This client's yard was green and healthy, but she found it boring. Her previous landscaper had planted 3 lilacs next to 3 pines next to 3 grasses, and so on. We had lots of ideas to take it up a notch.
We better defined the beds, filled them with flower and foliage color, and gave her a place to actually sit out in her garden.
Her thank you note: "Wow! I feel like I am off on an island somewhere! I just sit out there and look in amazement. My neighbor is inviting people over to his deck to take a look at our yard. It's gorgeous!"
