 Beds and Entryway Evergreens


In the above image I wanted to show you what an Emerald Evergreen would look like on the right corner. They grow 12′ to 15′ and stay somewhere around 3′ wide in most cases.


In this above image I am showing you what Green Mountain Boxwoods could look like framing the entrance.


In the above image I am showing you the top down view for if you want me to move the beds in any way.


In this above view I am showing you what another Hydrangea between the driveway and steps would look like, and I want some feed back about the corner area.

Front Garden Option ( Barberry Chrimson Pigmy, Spreading Yew ):


In the above image I have added Barberry, and Yews.



I was looking for some feedback on the size of the evergreens and shapes.



In this above image I have introduced three Dwarf English Boxwoods onto either side of the landscape design.


The above image is a close up of how the spacing is and color of these plants together.


How do you feel about the Dwarf English Boxwoods on either side?


Camellias, Loropetallum, Astilbe, Osmanthus ( Sweet Olive ).

In the above three images I have added a Sweet Olive ( Osmanthus Fragrans ) to the corner, and in the beds are three Camellias, three Loropetallum, and Coral Bells ( Palace Purple ) with Pink Astilbe on the ends. In the next three images I changed the Astilbe to a white variety.

I can change anything you see in the images. Thank you for the suggestions I know you are clients who value color. The Camellias will only bloom for a period during the summer and the Loropeatallum will keep on showing color with the leaves after blooming. How does this look and would you like me to move anything around?

New Update – Simpler landscape design from the past with side


The image above is what I am basing the estimate on. In the images below I have added Skypencil Hollies to the side yard with the other plants ( Lenten Rose, Endless Summer Hydrangea, and Japanese Painted Fern).

I will be calling you later today to discuss the pricing I come up with. Talk to you soon.

    Hi Dalton…that landscape looks fairly shaded with the Sycamore in the front and the wooded line in the back. I like Yews, but in rows, they lose their zing. How about a Camellia hedge, using the ‘April Kiss’ or ‘Mrs. Tingely’. Adorn the front Camellia hedge with some Lorapetalum ‘Purple Pixie’ mixed with some Gardenia Radicans. Maybe hide a Osmanthus Fragrans somewhere along the sides of the house. Lots of color and fragrance for the spring, summer, and fall!

      I am going to add the Camelia and Lorapetalum. Lorapetalum is also borderline if we have a really cold winter but I have seen it succeed once it is established pretty well. Your plant suggestions remind me of New Orleans, loads of Lorapetalum and Camelias.

    A comment from google+ about the design.

    If I were to start over, I’d focus on the fact that this is a Southern style house with a real personality. I would place a hedge of ‘Bright N Tight’ Cherry Laurel (Prunus caroliniana) along the border between the client and the neighbor with plenty of room between the trunks of the plants and the property line (say about 10-15 feet to give it room to grow so it won’t need pruned all the time. While it’s smaller and ‘sparse’ looking (unless they want to spend the big bucks and get full grown shrubs which I never recommend as large plants tend to have a lot of transplant shock problems); you could plant a long, narrow bed of the family’s favorite annual flowers in the gap between the hedge and the line. By the time the hedge is full grown, it will have gradually covered up this little flower bed. Another such hedge could be placed along the driveway to balance the other one out. I’d also set this one back about 10 feet.

    I am not a big fan of hedges and shrubs under windows as they are a constant struggle to keep out of the view. Instead, I would plant flower beds of Allium, Dwarf Dahlias, Camas and such. They will give the yard some much needed color and are easy to care for.

    On the corners of the house, I would go with Sweet pepperbush (Clethra alnifolia). It has summer flowers and fall color. It’s also fairly small for a shrub so it won’t need to be pruned out of the way very often. I, for one, don’t subscribe to the notion that tall houses always need to have the corners of their walls totally ‘softened’ with tall trees. Especially when the house is pretty and is not just a flat looking, rectangular slab of a structure.

    Along that neat, long set of front steps, I’d plant a narrow bed of family favorite annual flowers. Could make the borders of the bed on the sides of the grass slightly wavy to help break up the straight lines and plant the flowers in staggered clusters that will have colors that complement and contrast each other well rather than in straight rows.

    By the time you are done, there won’t be much front lawn left just a couple of patches on either side between the flower beds and the hedges, but I rather doubt from the looks of things now, that it is used for any activities anyway. I’m a huge fan of turf myself and am not one of the ‘get rid of it’ brigade, but it seems like what I’m thinking of would be more pleasant to look at than a blank expanse of grass.

    Now, if they did want to make some use of the front yard (and there isn’t some over-bearing HOA rule against it), they could put pavers down on one or both sides of the stairs in those neat little nooks below those awesome columns. This could make a couple of tiny patios so that they could sit outside in lawn furniture or at little round tables if they wanted to. Kind of a ‘front porch’ effect without going to the trouble and expense of building one.

    I can’t see if there is a walk along the front of those big shrubs under the windows, but if they put in the little patios, they could put narrow walks of pavers along there on the left side to connect the patio with the driveway. There could also be a little paver path from the base of the hand rail of the steps over to the patio as well. That way, people will be able to walk on the pavers to get to the patio without trampling and compacting the grass.

    I assume that the street tree will have to stay since I imagine that the city put it in.

    Thanks John for your suggestions.

    Hi Dalton! Sorry for my tardiness… Got guests in so I was occupied. Your rendering look great. While I LOVE color I feel the later depictions are a little to busy, especially given that I have such minimal yard space. I do want pretty green grass in the front. I prefer to keep the foundation planting closer to the house…. Not really extending beyond the front portico. Of importance to me is year round interest, hardiness and pest resistance. I do enjoy the first views with yews, boxwood and barberry. Do barberry get red without a lot of sun? I really want bushes that get red in the front row as I will be painting my front door red and want to scatter the color. Are burning bushes better? Love the curved sides and hydrangeas by side porch…. That area stays shaded. I can plant annuals in the front and I have 2 containers to add to stairs with flowers for added color. I do like the tall emerald arborvitae on the corners…. I believe the house style deserves a symetrical slightly formal look. Debating on the 2 shorter ones… Green mountain boxwoods framing the front by porch but I’m thinking that would probably be good looking. I welcome any more input…. I do enjoy color but want to respect the architecture.

    Thank you!

      No problem I do want to make sure I am keeping up with any questions and changes, I also want to post more of the side yard.
