SIMPLE, UNCLUTTERED SOPHISTICATION
This 2018 project in Royal Oak, MI, is an example of how adding personality to a home’s front yard can completely transform its look. A formal walkway leads past an asymmetrical raised stacked masonry bed featuring a Japanese maple tree. The other side of the front porch is flanked by a tall planter set among evergreen shrubbery that extends outward from the home’s foundation. Under the living room window, a double row of hedges frames a lovely rose garden, and softer plantings along the driveway create a more relaxed side-yard look. We took special care in selecting and placing plants and landscape elements that fit perfectly with the home’s diminutive size, for an overall look that is sophisticated in its simplicity.
