New home, woodland edge

Most new home construction comes with what we call, “The Builder’s Special”– 6 azaleas, 8 boxwood, a couple of hydrangeas and they’re done. This transitional modern home was no different. 

We were asked to created more interesting gardens, level and prepare an area for a swing set, create a bed for growing vegetables and herbs out of a defunct waterfall feature, and ”soften”, with plantings, a stone wall that was left unfinished. Being on the edge of a wooded conservation area, deer-resistant plants were essential.
