In the midst of construction, this woodland garden shows it’s bones. The field-stone stepper path, the boulder marking the steps to the lower area, the area laid-out for the BBQ pad of granite squares, and the first large drifts of ferns and lily-of-the-valley shape the spaces and create texture and movement . What you don’t see are the invasive plants my landscape contractors have removed and the loam we’ve added to provide the grades we need. Many unseen details go into the design and installation of even the simplest project. I’ll show the completed landscape soon, but perhaps you can already image the journey along the path.
