Log Cabin by Lake rustic-landscape

Log Cabin by Lake

A deck and patio lead from the log cabin to a fire ring above the bluff overlooking the lake. Carefully controlled edging to the lawn created order from the surroundings and emphasized the clients desire for off setting the rustic nature of the log home. Low maintenance plantings and a simple gravel pathway connect the gardens with the residence.

Yes we over seed with a shade tolerant mix of fescues. We also add lime and transplant fertilizer in the spring. The shade tolerant grasses are also ok in the sun and you can use a perennial rye if you want a faster growing lawn with less drought tolerance.
Thanks for asking.
