Here it is, our new garden (a much nicer and more appropriate term for our backyard, post-renovation) in its newfound glory. Craig and I are just absolutely thrilled with the result. A special thank you goes out to Gary Baverstock for his design skills and to Jeanne with Design-Construct-Install, Inc. for the expert bed preparation, plant selection, planting, pruning, mulching, and everything else that went along with making Gary’s design come to life.
The final pieces to Gary’s design will be a wooden arch/gateway at the back gate as a focal point as well as a nice bench with stepping stones leading to it under the elm tree in the back corner. We’ll add these in the spring. We have also vowed to tackle the lawn itself in the spring.
These photos really don’t do it justice, as I haven’t been able to time my photo-taking with optimal sunlight conditions. I’ll work on that next weekend. In the meantime, I wanted to share some photos!
