Our client wants to stay in her home as she ages and fully enjoy her yard. A spread of suburban lawn doesn’t interest her, so a diverse palette of native and edible plants is much more appealing. First the old lawn was smothered and densely planted. The borrowed view of a neighboring water tower and agricultural field has been enhanced with a new fieldstone wall. Pieces of the old cedar fencing have been repurposed as garden features, including a raspberry trellis. Smooth bluestone walkways now provide easy access. A rock scree holds a slope. And the pollinators have arrived!
