Project Description: 

For this project, our client wanted to clean up and modernize their front beds to match the look of their home. We installed  3/16” steel edging and new soil, and placed a variety of sun and shade tolerant plants in the beds. One side saw almost complete shade from their pecan trees, while the south side was subject to nearly all-day sun. 

For their back yard, we faced a challenge in the form of a high-energy pup named Fargo. Fargo had run a literal trench into their back yard and had reduced a lot of their landscaping efforts to dust. A secondary goal was to create outdoor living space near their deck to take advantage of the shade of a large pecan. We replaced all the edging with 3/16” steel, built a bocce court and standup limestone patio, and installed commercial-grade low-voltage lighting. Fargo’s run got a heavy layer of 5/8” granite gravel. All the side beds were planting with tough native plants, including coral honeysuckle to fill in where some star jasmine had died in the 2021 winter storm.
