Hi there these are just the basic images of the house which is the first stage. Next I will be uploading the completed design images in about 3 work days.
Below please see the form where you can send me links to things you want to share on the web.
I wanted some feedback on where I have been going with the design before I made the grilling area and plants around the fence areas.
In the above image you can see to the right three of the Sweet Bay Magnolias, you already have one so we would need two more, this provides some screening from the neighbors on that side.
The plants to the right are Rhododendrons and Butterfly Ginger which is very sweet smelling in the summer.
The purplish flowers here above are Geraniums that blo0m all summer.
The Japanese Maple you already own is incorporated right next to the pergola.
In the design above are Lavender with blue blooms, a grass that grows mostly straight, and Sentinel Junipers that are tall and narrow. The tallest they get is 5′.
In the above images you can see a small low growing Pine.
From this view you can see Lavender, Butterfly Ginger, Rhododendrons, Junipers, and Geraniums by the fountain.
The evergreens that look like small Christmas trees are Green Mountain Boxwoods. The bed is a river rock type and in reality would have a border of brown iron to keep dirt out.
A fountain is incorporated into the crunchy gravel path to the patio with Lavender.
The peach Hybrid Tea Rose you already own is incorporated opposite side of the patio from the Japanese Maple seen here above.
The pergola is added on the western side of the patio for some shielding of hot evening sun’s rays to make the space more comfortable.
There is space for a table and chairs or an outdoor sofa or outdoor umbrella with table and chairs, there is space to live.
The grasses between the patios provide a low soft barrier for a feeling of enclosure.
Lastly I am showing the Magnolias because they also will provide some softening of sunlight in the evenings as the sun sets. Can you send me an email with any suggestions or changes you would like to see?
In the above image you are seeing Liberty Hollies, a boulder, and similar plants to the rest of the design to keep consistent with the look.
Here stepping stones lead to the patio or you can take a right and go onto the deck.
I filled the gaps along the house with Camellias this time.
Boulders on this end of the patio are adding extra seating and a sense of firmness to the landscape.
From here you can see the cabana and the pots that divide the patio areas.
I have a small water feature added by the fire pit for sound. This is for the future at some point.
In the above image you can see Emerald Arborvitae for screening out the unwanted view.
And lastly her you can see the Camelias, if they don’t work I can change them again. Talk to you soon.
