Another Front Yard Lawn Removal Project - Alpine, CA

This project had a few different water & sunlight areas to consider. The front entry is mostly shady and the previous lawn area in the front yard is mostly sunny.

This client has a narrow side yard with neighbors very close. Columnar and vining plants were strategically used to gain some privacy on this side of the house.

Margery: Here is a photo of what went in this particular backyard. This client also was planning on adding a portable spa to the paved area just behind the house, where they would have a view of the narrow planted area and beyond.
