A FORMAL ENTRY AND A FUN-FILLED BACKYARD
Every square inch is utilized in this 2018 Farmington Hills, MI, landscape makeover. The front entry welcomes visitors with a formal, symmetrical arrangement of shrubs, perennials, planters filled with colorful flowers, and a simple walkway. Along the garage side of the home, a walkway meanders gently to the backyard, while the opposite side of the home is flanked with a living privacy wall of cedar trees. In the backyard, the formality of the home’s front entry gives way to pure fun. A kidney-shaped pool is surrounded by a spacious concrete pool deck which offers plenty of space for lounging in the shade or soaking up the sun. The pool area is surrounded by low-maintenance plants, and a cascading waterfall created with river rock and large stone slabs creates a tranquil atmosphere that masks the sounds of the neighborhood. The backyard is a gardener’s delight: not too big, not to small, with just the right mix of plants to create a lovely oasis that still allows for views of the adjacent meadow.
