After: Lush Living Space
The new walkway helps draw the entire landscape together by using the same pavers as the Scrabble patio, laid out in a random color pattern. Curved planting beds edged with pavers and accented with natural boulders help soften the lines of the hardscape; Lisa is eager to start enjoying the tomatoes, basil, rosemary and mustard in her new boulder garden. Russian cypress (Microbiota decussata
), quaking aspens (Populus tremuloides
) and pagoda dogwoods (Cornus alternifolia
) give height and help screen the property; daylilies, dragon's blood (Sedum spurium
'Dragon's Blood'), Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia
) and hydrangeas join with new sod and other plantings to round out the greenscape.
