We made so many amazing changes in our design process but I will speak of a few: This garden already had a near perfect dogwood tree. Its location was perfect but it had been damaged by the pruning of a well-intentioned "mow, blow and go" gardener. It took 3 years of light but precise pruning to correct damage and now it is the long term focal point of the back garden.
The new deck feels more like an outdoor living room and is an extension of the great room. It makes this interior room seem significantly bigger and airy. We used planters instead of railing and they bring the garden (including near year round flowering plantings) up into the view from inside. Before our design, the garden was obscured and felt cut off from the house, now it feels like the garden is part of the great room. We created a kitchen window view with plantings that look good year round and bring the Anna hummingbirds into close view in winter. This had previously been a forgotten area and wasn't anything the client had expected. It is now one of her favorite views.
Our adventures do continue and after 6 years we may revise the front foundation planting, I just got an email asking about re-working a few plants. And in a few days I will probably get another email thanking me for the bottle of wine. (Actually it was a text with a photo of her gift.) I truly appreciate testimonials.
