The homeowners have always wanted to add a stone wall to their landscape but they've been afraid that a new wall would look too stark and unfriendly.
Our solution is to create a timeless look by building a wall that has planting pockets for mosses, herbs and flowers. We'll also blend the wall into the landscape by adding evergreen trees, a flowering cherry and masses of shrubs and flowers.
flowering cherry tree 'Yoshino'
blue lacecap hydrangea
rose 'Baby Love'
barberry 'Crimson Pygmy'
sedum 'Bertram Anderson'
sedum 'October Daphne'
hens and chicks
threadleaf coreopsis 'Moonbeam'
