This adorable Hyde Park bungalow needed a bit of curb appeal as well as a courtyard refresh.
The old driveway was replaced, allowing more versatility in the space, being replaced with washed granite gravel. A sleek combination of mulched beds contrasted against washed granite gravel elevates the space to a more contemporary feel, while still maintaining the charm of the house and neighborhood. Limestone flagstone paths walk you through the courtyard space, beckoning you to the backyard. On your way there, you’ll enjoy a selection of native and adapted plants and grasses that will acclimate to the space beautifully, establishing enjoyment for the family for years to come.
