Landscape of the Month
RSC Landscaping was engaged early in the Spring of 2019 to tackle a difficult design. The existing landscape had many different plant beds in the rear garden, all separated by lawn areas that were not exactly thriving due to the lack of sun and some very mature trees. The owners, (The Mrs. in particular), wanted to somehow make her “She Shed” a part of the landscape since it was an attractive shed. Since the back was so broken up, the designer chose to “connect” areas so the garden had some unity. The design was accomplished via a broken flagstone walkway that now attaches the patio at the house to the “She Shed”. Lawn areas were now replaced with mulch and large stepping stones. A basalt column water feature was incorporated at the left corner of the shed, and a repurposed garden bench now has a home at the right front corner of the shed for the owner to relax after potting some annuals. The garden looks so mature due to some wonderful existing perennials that hadn’t even broken dormancy upon the first site visit. Now beautiful Hosta, Astilbe, Polygonatum (Solomons Seal), Geranium, and other perennials welcome you in the middle of the garden, along with a dry pond while traversing the stone path. Outdoor lighting topped off this project so the owners have a wonderful view of their garden from the screened porch at night. We hope we can do the same for your gardens this spring and summer – so please give us a call.
