A front foundation landscape makeover. traditional-landscape

A front foundation landscape makeover.

This was a foundation planting and walkway makeover. All the existing plantings ("Builders Special") were removed and a few were relocated. We are a firm believer in re-purposing existing plants when it makes sense.
The cement walk was removed and replaced with a pine hall paver walk.
Exciting architectural plants, broadleaf evergreens, birch trees and a flurry of re-blooming perennials gave excuse to design a serpentine walkway. A fun project that has 4 seasons of interest!

What is the tall, skinny evergreen tree called? - It's so unique and beautiful. Great job on this yard, BTW.

The plant was developed some years ago but only recently has made any movement in the market. Still fairly rare. I guess you could categorize it as modern or contemporary? Depends how it is applied in a project. Weeping evergreens are not a that new to the gardening world. What I really like about this plant is that the trunk remains straight all while the branches weep. Most weeping evergreens don't exhibit that.
