Backyard in the woods.
To create a fun space for a growing family and work well with an older house we decided to go with a classic design with an added twist. Existing brick patio got a new “face lift” by adding slightly raised planter beds with mix of shade loving perennials and evergreens. New railroad tracks pathway with steps separates now a fire pit area and an “evergreen” open lawn (artificial turf) and terminates at a custom build playhouse (still in the works). Almost all of the trees and grown shrubs have been saved (beautiful azaleas, rhododendrons and japanese maples). New fields of hostas, coral bells, ferns, oregon grape and dogwood illuminated at night provide extra interest throughout the garden.
