There is so much happening on this project we’ve had to divide it into two parts for ya! Make sure you check out the Back Yard.
This Hyde Park cottage had recently undergone a beautiful indoor renovation, and was in desperate need of an outdoor facelift to match.
In the front yard, our primary focus was to create an open and enhanced entry way. We used terracing to build a level limestone walkway that refocused the attention to the entry of the house, creating a more welcoming and usable feel. Terracing also helped us create defined planting spaces for visual interest as well as helping with proper drainage and erosion control. Plants that would grow naturally in the cracks and crevices of the wall were selected to soften the hardscapes, and help reduce the urban heat effect. With the addition of a small water feature, we were also able to provide wildlife with a safe and natural habitat!
