Front Yard Refreshes

In constructing the gardens of this home, landscape designers employed strategies to make the look appealing in any season. One example: Limelight Hydrangeas were placed in pockets so that when they die back, there's not a noticeable empty spot.

Custom House Numbers

Details set a house apart, and it’s worth the cost to incorporate a one-of-a-kind touch. Consider splurging on a custom-cut metal number plate. Here, the number plate contrasts with the native stone retaining wall and echoes the copper tones of oversize planting bowls. Perennial ground-hugging ‘Pink Jewel’ Sedum spurium softens the wall’s hard lines and injects more color to entry plantings. Design by Landform Design Group.

Bring on the Blooms

A tumble of cottage garden plants weaves a welcome mat for this cozy home. Early season flowers feature chartreuse tones of hydrangeas and ‘Autumn Joy’ sedum, which fade to rose shades as summer slips into fall. White coneflowers and silvery lamb’s-ears sound a steady note in this symphony of bloom. A trio of tuteur trellises add vertical interest and contrast with the home’s curving roof lines.
