We have started on the design and here is the representation of your home.
Original Image of your home.
The above photo does not yet show the fencing, plants, plant beds, and gravel area with seating. I will be updating this design from time to time over the next few days.
In the above image a concrete walkway was added along with the picket fencing that is at your home.
In the above image the trees that are present at your home were added.
In the above image I added mulch to most of the yard because having more garden is a priority and lessening the lawn surface,
this could be changed to have more lawn if you like. I also added the gravel area we spoke about and put in boulders for seating.
In the next images I will change many things. Just send me a message through the form below to let me know which items are more
important after viewing these images.
The above image is here because the client requested seeing a table and chairs for size comparison.
More Crape Myrtles were added to the front near the fence and giving space to the arbor for a vine type plant to grow on.
Also a Japanese Maple was added near the sidewalk corner.
In the above image Knockout roses were added to the right fence area, and Otto Luykens by the porch.
A few pieces of flagstone for a transition between the porch and gravel area were added as well as an Arborvitae to the right front corner of the porch and Peonese in groupings. I also added an evergreen to give a sense of enclosure near the Japanese Maple by the sidewalk.
Now in the above image you can clearly see the evergreen by the fence. Since you have so much traffic and noise this adds a simple barrier while
keeping the rest of the view open.
I have added Coral Bells Palace Purple to the image in groupings.
The above image shows the grass area expanded. I can make it larger if you like just let me know.
The boulders in the gravel have been taken out. Here above we can see the hibiscus with the red blooms near the coral bells and viburnum.
Here is another view where you can see there are no boulders.
And this view is from the street.
Here in the image above I have removed the gravel area entirely and made the grass area larger.
Different view of the same change larger grass area and no gravel area.
Same design different view.
The above is the same design different view.
In the above image I have re-added the gravel area in a different shape and have changed the walkway to flagstone.
I am sharing an idea I have to improve the walkway, I understand we will not be doing a walkway project.
In the above image I have added ferns to the flagstone walkway image.
All of the gravel area has been removed and hosta has been added to the landscape, I also switched out the tall evergreen Arborvitae for a Dwarf Alberta Spruce.
The above image is a front view with the new hosta and evergreen on the right corner.
The above image has May Night Salvia for a splash of color near the entryway. The red are the hibiscus you mentioned.
In these two images the one above and below I have Dianthus as a splash of color, Dianthus comes in Pink , Red, white, and combinations of pink, red, and white.
I also added two yellowy gold plants near the entrance ( Golden Mops Cypress ).
