Dunnett Residence - Project Overview

When meeting with the client the discussion was about replacing a Holly hedge that was not thriving. It was built for privacy for the back pool area and to add privacy on a property line. The client came to our business to look at the plants in our yard we had talked about during our consultation. He took note of all the different plant materials in our yard and the focus changed to color and bringing the curb appeal to the front of the house.

Old plant materials were removed from the island bed. It was expanded, pulverized topsoil was used and moss rock boulders were added. Select evergreens were installed but the main construction was on seasonal color and lots of it. Waves of Coneflowers, Daylilies, Crocosmia Lucifer, Garden Phlox, along with Heuchera and mixed sedums. Hakonechloa grass was added to the shady spots and Lime Light Hydrangeas for structure and late Summer/Fall/Winter interest.

The homeowner loved the final results and the privacy issues were also taken care of. The homeowner has since moved away, but the perennial garden continues to bring eye catching color movement and curb appeal.
