Water's edgeBeach Style Landscape, DC Metro
Native plantings of Bottlebrush Buckeye, Christmas Fern, Sedges are mixed with Hosta and Epimedium to add color, texture and interest to this hillside.
The new beds are arranged in large undulating curving swaths around beneath the existing trees. A few understory trees were added for their flowering attributes and to help the tall existing trees tie into the landscape. Care was taken to keep the majority of the plantings low so as to not interfere with the view of the water. These large beds also work as a natural filter and erosion control for water coming from the homes above.
