Yards evolve along with their owners. It can be easy to alter your landscape design over the years when you have a trusted landscaper who knows you and your property. We have a client in Zionsville for whom we have worked for 25 years, improving and maintaining her home landscape.
Every landscape design is developed in stages. We helped our client’s yard through three of them, from installing a pool to building patios, and finally redoing her front yard completely. We’ve had a hand in all the landscaping around the house.
We started with very simple landscaping in the back yard—then our client wanted to install a pool. The whole design now had to revolve around this very large water feature. We helped her locate the pool and created a foliage scheme to provide privacy and color. For perimeter screening, we planted evergreens, Norway and white spruces that will also give the back yard color in winter. A big, beautiful weeping spruce acts as a focal point for the surroundings. The plantings enhanced the pool area, with shrub roses and perennials bringing color back each year.
After the pool project, our client wanted a couple of patios to expand her outdoor living space for dining and enjoying evenings outside. We built two connected patios: one patio for a large table with an arbor for shade, and one patio for a fire pit with a convenient sitting wall.
Redoing the front landscaping was our most recent project. The front yard had overgrown quite a bit, so we designed a landscape that enhanced the overall look of the home and gave it great curb appeal. We planted flowering dogwoods, Winter King hawthorns, evergreens, perennials, flowering shrubs, and some very pretty Laceleaf Japanese maples.
Today she and her family greatly enjoy the pool and the patios. As our client’s desires, tastes, and needs changed, we were there to help her design and implement her plans to create her desired outdoor living space.
