After looking over the three design plans, the couple decides on Jon Feldman's design which rounds out the yard with beds of flowering trees, bright perennials and even a secret garden. A new lawn is laid, leaving a courtyard of green that connects the patio and the three main garden beds. Lights positioned throughout the property allow the Martinos to enjoy their landscape day and night. Even the flower beds against the house are bursting with colorful lantana, hydrangeas and geraniums. They decided to keep the grass driveway that leads to the garage, but Feldman managed to turn it into a plus with beds of shrubs, trees and flowers.
