The job also entailed creating an expanded deck area on the side of the house that would accommodate a hot tub and incorporating a vegetable garden within the front terraced area.
Principal Ed Ball and his team addressed drainage issues in the front with a retaining wall that handles runoff; they also enlarged the terrace so that it now encompasses the vegetable garden adding drainage in the front yard and by the garage. A cedar fence along the side of the house affords privacy by the hot tub without eliminating views.
The planting palette is anchored by evergreen shrubs that create architectural bones in the yard, augmented by flowering shrubs and perennials for seasonal interest.
