This beautiful new home was made more accessible through the use of a tall, custom designed and engineered concrete retaining wall. This wall featured planters and a set of stairs to allow for pedestrian access to the space below.
The planters within the walls were filled with weeping winter jasmine and willowleaf cotoneaster. As these plantings mature their foliage will cascade down the walls.
This planting pair offers flowers late winter through spring and red fruit later in the summer and fall.
A dry stream bed meanders through the space below the bridge to the house and is bordered with plantings designed to offer interest throughout the seasons. Plantings include Oakleaf Hydrangea, Mountain Laurel and Blueberry.
