This walk is colored concrete and original to the house. It is approximately 6' wide, nice and generous.

Honestly, I can't remember, probably Kichler. My rule to landscape lighting is to never see the bulb, whether it's an up-light, down-light or path light, I always want to the light source hidden. The only exceptions are lanterns, sconces and chandeliers where the light fixture becomes decorative.

It is a hybrid boxwood, Buxus 'Glencoe' (Boxwood Chicagoland Green) developed by the Chicago Botanical Garden, Hardiness Zone 4-8, similar to Boxwood 'Green Velvet'. I like it sheared into a low hedge (12") bordering hardscape. This photo is one year from installation, so you can still make out the individual shrubs.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Walkway Landscaping Rolls Out the Welcome Mat
A row of simple shrubbery flanking the walkway to your front door feels clean and classic. Boxwoods are a great choice for imitating the look of one cohesive hedge.
