Hi there I am expecting to post the design on this web page Wednesday April 11th in the afternoon to evening.
Update : Landscape Design:
This landscape is designed for your yard to become more usable. It also has some interesting ideas related to the plantings.
Included are a fireplace, some simple furniture, a gravel walkway and benches with retaining walls for the bed areas to the sides.
In the above images you can see some 2″ to 6″ river rock is placed in the gaps between the walkway and fence as well as the wall areas.
Many of the plants chosen were selected for their meaning to historic Christianity.
In the image above you can see a Green Mountain Boxwood, Otto Luyken Laurels ( Laurels symbolize Christs return to Jerusalem and Christs Resurrection and triumph over for humanity, 3 Blueberry plants, a Hinoki Cypress in the corner ( Cypress was believed to have been used to create the Ark ), and some Daisies ( Daisies symbolize innocence ).
The pink plant at the end of the bed is a Lily ( Lilies symbolize hope, faith, charity, chastity, and purity ).
In the above image are Columbine ( Co0lumbine symbolize faith, hope, and love ).
In the above image are Ferns ( Ferns symbolize humility and solitude.
In the above image are Irises ( Irises symbolize Christs passion and resurrection ).
In the Hydroponic pots are Rosemary.
The plants on the sides of the fireplace are Liberty Hollies, and Hyssop ( With Hollies the berries symbolize the blood Jesus shed and the spikey leaves represent the crown of thorns, and Hyssop played a roll in being the plant where the branch was used to hold up the sponge of vinegar held to Jesus’s mouth while he was on the cross ) I went back and forth over using Hyssop but overall it is a great plant other than the negative connotiation.
In the bed next to the patio are Dwarf Alberta Spruce, Irises, Daffodils ( Daffodils also go by the name Lent Lily because of when they bloom and they also symbolize Gentiles who converted to Christ, the Cyclamen only have three petals to the flowers and in historic Christianity they symbolize the trinity ) , and pink Cyclamen.
Thank you and please look over everything, take notes you will share with me later. Text me so we can set up a time to talk one evening when you both can be together so I can make any changes you like.
Hi there I wanted to show you images with more summer flowers like you requested. In the above image the additional flowering plants are tall summer Phlox, Ice Plant, and Balloon Flower.
In the bed near the patio I added tall summer Phlox, Baloon Flower, and Ice Plant.
The change around the fire place is the tall summer Phlox was added.
These images represent a bubbling boulder fountain in the corner with Pieris Fire Mountain plants.
Along the other fence where the Ferns and Columbine are I added some shade summer plants as well, here are Lenten Rose, and Peonies.
Here are a few images of what it could look like with no fireplace as well. In the beds I also added a couple of Karly Rose Grasses.
I am working on the estimate and will be in touch soon. Have a great weekend.
