North Arlington Residence


Sinuous Driveway - Acts as the backbone of the garden. Both the lower and upper garden are bordered by Annabelle Hydrangeas and Zelkovas planted along the asphalt driveway making the driveway recede and emphasizing a garden feel to an otherwise functional space.

Thank you. The trees are Zelkovas and the shrubs are Annabelle Hydrangeas that line an interior driveway.

The Annabelle Hydrangea are planted 3-4' apart.This helps as the Annabelle's mature they grow together and support one another ( more or less)

All hydrangeas in the bed. It does not look empty in winter- you have the architecture of the shrubs and the trees.

The Zelkovas are spaced 23.5" apart (on center).
They are regularly pruned to maintain their shape and size. Good Luck!

It depends on the type of hydrangea bush and how they will be cared for as well as the existing space between the trees you now have. You have to account for how big the trees will get as well as how big you want the bushes to go. If you have a service that will keep them groomed then they can control that a bit. However if you are going to let them rage out then they can get pretty big. This is obviously a manicured yard so the homeowner probably keeps them in check.

What about the fall??? - This is so beautiful!!! I only wonder how is looks in the fall/winter months? I live in south Mississippi & we are blessed with lush landscapes & very mild winters. Having said that, our hydrangeas are left as dead looking sticks in the winter. Is this particular one an evergreen? I would really like to do this but, want green year round. What are your thoughts on this? Thanks!

Annabelle hydrangea is not an evergreen, Your best bet is to go to your local nursery and ask what grows in your area that look like a hydrangea... and is evergreen .

Are those hydrangeas - Are those really hydrangeas, because the leaves don't look it, or are they just another variety?

Curbing (white beside the ashphalt). - Curbing looks fabulous (as do all the plants) Is that poured concrete or paver blocks? If it is poured concrete could you tell us the width and depth; and whether or not it is flat or slanted. We would like to install something similair - we live in Canada so depth may vary in the colder climates. Lastly - what type of plants are in the pictures? Many thanks

You could do a brick area in front of front door to delineate entrance... and find a transition (a break. in the paving with another material) to the asphalt or other material you are using.
Just an idea I .... Good luck. you have the right idea.

Fix the driveway. Maybe you've been putting off having your driveway repaired or redone. Early fall, when's it's cooling off but not yet cold, is the best time to schedule this kind of project. My own driveway project is scheduled to start in two weeks.Tell me: What home projects are you planning now that the kids are back in school?More: Quick Home Fixes That Make You Feel GreatUse Houzz to Create Your To-Do List
Solution B: Establish a rhythm with regularly spaced trees on either side of the driveway, interplanted with a modest-height hedge.This glorious mass planting of white Annabelle hydrangeas (Hydrangea arborescens 'Annabelle') sweeps out of sight, enticing visitors to see where it leads. Although one can still see over these shrubs, there is a sense of mystery since the ground plane is not immediately visible on the other side.
