Breathtaking. How was the edging done especially near the house?

Hi Katie, thanks for the compliment. The edging is a simple cut edge between the lawn and gardens, nothing fancy. The gravel seating area has a Belgin Block edging at grade to help keep the gravel from migrating into the lawn or garden beds. Hope this helps. Good luck with your project.

What are the stones for the walkway? And how did you lay them? - What are the stones for the front walkway and how were they laid?

Thanks for your question nickimann, the walkway was installed using large Pennsylvania Field Stone. Each stone is approximately 3 to 3 1/2 feet wide and about 2-3 inches thick. They are each set in a base of gravel and stone dust and have space between each stone for soil and grass seed for the lawn.

Hope this helps.

Good luck with your project.

Hello jfjchastain, thanks for your question. The plants in front of the fence are a mix of day lilies and daffodils - the ones behind the fence are red twig dogwood and Limelight Hydrangea. Hope this helps.

Good luck with your project!

Paint Color - What color are the shutters and front door?

hi obbdreaming, see this response from the homeowner:

The paint colors on the house are from Sherwin Williams. Although I do not remember the names of the colors off the top of my head, the shutters are black and the body of the house was one step down on the same card.

As for the door, this is original to the house, built in 1924. We touched up the color with fresh cherry colored stain about ten years ago, and now the color is a bit of a blend of old stain color, new stain color and some fading. Not something easily replicated!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Traditional
This house's style is colonial, so a straightforward traditional landscape might not set it off to advantage. On the other hand, a cottage garden, especially in this rather large space, might be too much. The solution: Combine the two. The lawn, the formal paving to the side of the house and the garden beds filled with shrubs reflect a traditional approach, while the irregular pavers, the picket fence and the blowsy plants behind it add a cottage touch.
3. Groundbreaking event. Dig up the first layer of your front yard and install continuous flagstone steps from the sidewalk to the house for an eye-pleasing path. Go the extra mile and design an adjacent patio out of the same stone.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Pick the Perfect Front Walkway Material
Perfection isn't necessary when building a path. These irregular pieces of slate add to the charming, cozy feel of this cottage. The path is welcoming and unassuming.More ways to add curb appeal:How to Pick a Mailbox That Really DeliversCurb Appeal: The Front Door
Billy Goodnick added this to Give Curb Appeal a Self-Serving Twist
As revealed in this aerial view of the same yard, the plant massing to the left of the fence also provides a measure of intimacy for a gravel-topped conversation area.
Create a front-yard seating area. A home lacking a front porch can still have a spot for sitting and watching the world go by. It can be as simple as two Adirondack chairs in the front yard. See more ways to add curb appeal
