To renovate the existing landscape to attract nature
Wanted to attract birds by having a more nature setting & the right plant material
A water feature and entertaining space for small groups
Customer wanted lots of features, in a very small yard.
Existing yard was artificial turf, so there was lots of gravel under it. This all had to be excavated, removed, and garden soil mix added, so plants could thrive.
Finding the right balance of plant material so birds will both be attracted to the yard, and then stay in the yard.
A Rocky Mountain style was chosen. This united all the elements of water feature, birds, & plants.
I created a get-away that takes you on a journey thru nature. You start by listening to a mountain stream, then crossing a dry creek over a stone bridge, that takes you to a small patio tucked away in the forest.
Along the way, there are plants that flower throughout the season & have different fragrances, to entice you to stay a little longer.
