Grafton customer wanted a design that would complement her current hardscape while adding beauty and pizzazz around the house and rest of the property. Front and one side of the house had stone for covering and needed plants that could handle a little less moisture retention. Darker colored shrubs of varying heights were used against the lighter color of the house to add contrast and retain the tiered effect in the back yard. Planting ornamental trees with unique characteristics creates interest to the landscape. Customer supplemented flowering pots throughout the planting beds for color accents.
