Here are the first images of the basic house in the computer system.
My program represents areas as flat but we know there is a slope and any estimates will reflect the slope. There is a form at the bottom of the page if you have links that you want to share.
This may be a little different than what you were expecting but I was excited about some ideas I wanted to share. I would like some feedback on what you see. Remember these are only images that can be changed.
The row of trees to the left are Columnar Hornbeams, the evergreen at the corner is a Hinoki Cypress, the three tall columnar evergreens are Blue Arrow Junipers, the dark green small evergreens are Otto Luyken Laurels, there are 7 Rosmaries, and 3 Lilacs in the design for the front you are seeing.
There is a window on your home right where the stone is in the above image and I cannot put a window on a stone wall in this program. If I have to put a window I will find a way but in the design nothing will be blocking the spot. In the beds of this design is a loose rock and boulders. I am looking for some feedback on the ideas in this design.
In the view below you can see large evergreens ( Canadian Hemlocks ), Laurels at the gate and Green Mountain Boxwoods framing the entrance to the back yard.
From this above view you can see what the neighbors will eventually see as the Hemlocks become fully grown.
Above are the Green Mountain Boxwoods framing the gate.
In this back yard there are Hydrangeas in white, and Blue Fortune Agistache in the lavender colored blooming plants.
Down the walkway on the left are Hydrangea, and a shade tolerant Hinoki Cypress.
As we get closer to the deck area there are more Hydrangea, a Hinoki Cypress and on the right is a Canadian Cap Yew.
The white blooming plants on the back of the seat bench are a white blooming Spirea.
In the above view you can see two Liberty Hollies on the other two corners of the home.
Newest Design Update:
In the above image there are Otto Luyken Laurels near the wooden pole by the driveway, and below are the Mountain Laurels, my program has a limited amount of this plant to choose from and these are the best example.
In the below image you can see the magnolia in the front yard.
The Rosemary have been changed to Otto’s and the Otto’s near the home have been changed to Gardenia’s.
After you reminded me about the other gate I have re-arranged the area by the gates.
The Juddii Viburnum pictured above are semi – deciduous, they keep a portion of leaves during the winter. This plant has a sweet smelling pink bloom in the spring and interesting fall color.
Near the deck I changed the Hinoki Cypress’s to a form of Boxwood that tolerates plenty of shade. I believe Hinoki’s need a little more light than what you have. I had chosen a shade tolerant variety but after reading more I just want to be sure what you get lives in your conditions.
Where the viburnum are I placed Hydrangea’s between and in front.
Where the Hollies were I changed them out with Oakleaf Hydrangea that will have fall color, summer blooms, and winter exfoliating bark.
The plants between the corners are Red or Yellow Twig Dogwood. In the winter they have a really interesting colored stem and will take the shade.
The above image is a top down view of the seating area. Talk to you soon.
