This welcoming garden is one part of the Landscape Master Plan created for this client. The design was implemented and constructed in phases over several years. The landscape design transformation began with the entry garden. It started when the client and I chose the special elegant container for its focal point.
You might wonder how we chose it. After an on-line search, I visited several stores that sell special containers to see what was in stock that fit my design vision and the client would like. I had included concept photos of several styles with my Master Plan. Then I invited my client on a “field trip” to select a container. In person, you can touch and feel it as a physical and visual presence. The winner is the one featured.
Notice the drift low growing green boxwood. It embraces the container and adds four seasons of visual contrast. The design concept is to create a special place to greet people and also to draw the eye to the recessed front door. The white porch bench also plays a role to welcome and invite you to pause and linger and engage your senses while you view the gardens.
Before: It’s Ordinary and Dull
After: A Warm & Inviting & Happy Place
I love the textures, foliage combinations with colorful annuals, and the inviting bench. This garden invites you to linger, breathe deep, and let your senses come alive.
