This large elevated corner lot was transformed into a lush, textural oasis filled with year-round interest and inviting plantings for wildlife. Front paths lead to a sunny side garden with a sitting area and raised vegetable beds. The primary entrance to the home is in the back. A new back porch and stairs were added and the railing to the basement access was updated to match. The raised deck was replaced with a flagstone patio. A mixture of textures and colors enclose the back and screen the casual entertainment area. The result is a relaxing, private and usable space for entertaining and unwinding after a busy day.
