This client, originally from France, wanted a series of gardens to remind her of her childhood in the French Countryside. After careful research, we created a series of gardens that were both reminiscent of the French Countryside with it’s quaint cottage gardens, bloom-filled spaces and soft plantings.
Perennial Lined Driveway Garden
Perennials with varied foliage color and texture line this Clinton garden. Rose bushes along the way provide for excellent cut flowers during the growing season. This landscape provides both color and texture to the entry and driveway area.
Silver Moon Garden
This client truly enjoyed her yard and entertained frequently. She wanted her guests to enjoy the experience of a moon garden. With silver foliage and white blooms, this charming Moon Garden really stands out at night when bathed in moonlight.
Provincial Style Landscape Border
Provincial landscape border. Carefully designed with a care-free feeling, French countryside gardens have a romantic feel with unclipped bushes and perennials of varying height.
Moonlight Serenade Garden
This additional Moon Garden is a Specialty Garden composed of plants with silver foliage and white blooms. When the full moon is out this is a garden serenade.
Moonlight Garden Magic
Another, larger moonlight garden in the back yard. Complete with Lamb's ear, Silver Mound and a white shrub rose this dreamy moonlight garden adds a romantic touch to this French Provincial landscape.
Variety In Blooms And Foliage
While the sunny picket fence gives way to a privacy fence nestled beneath a canopy of flowering trees, the garden transitions to perennials and shrubs that lend color and softness to the shady back landscape border.
Timeless Classic Landscape
Roses and Hydrangeas give a classic feel to this driveway garden border.
Landscape Ideal For Entertaining
We removed an existing, tired concrete slab and extended this patio area with pavers reminiscent of flagstone. The pavers give a more even surface than flagstone making them better suited for patio furniture. Surrounded by lush gardens, adding a firepit made this the ideal space for entertaining.
Less structured than the formal gardens of the city, but well thought out so that there are abundant blooms during almost all season. We added in some specialty Moonlight gardens in both the front and the back of the property. Border gardens filled with classic flowers are backed by a classic picket fence.
Here is the property before the renovation:
