Before and After: A cottage gets a modern makeover.
BEFORE: Not enough usable space. Unkempt & inconsistent plantings
After the homeowners completed a renovation of their interior of their home, they turned to the outdoor space, which hadn’t yet caught up with the house’s cool new vibe. On their wish list?
✓ Space for lounging in the front yard, perhaps with a firepit?
✓ Privacy from the road
✓ Plants that match the new, modern aesthetic of the house
✓ Lighting for curb appeal
✓ Bright and cheerful color to complement their blue paint
Yardzen: Got it!
FIRST DRAFT 3D design
✓ Native grasses to create separation and privacy for front hardscaped area.
✓ Repeated Lavender along the sidewalk. Hearty plants do well in high-traffic areas. Bring on the bees!
✓ Neat and tidy row of Boxwoods and Blue Fescue along the pathway matches the contemporary door and draws the eye in.
✓ New modern fence concept along the left side of the property.
✓ Smooth and contemporary muted gray concrete keeps it clean and simple.
Prefer some topography in the front yard.
Not in love with the fence concept. “Perhaps a bit too modern.” [Noted!]
More bright colors, without overdoing it.
Prefer hardscaping along the sidewalk, as opposed to plantings.
What would modern lighting fixtures look like?
Hardscaping is perfect. ✓
