Maple Drive Charmer

September 12, 2015

 

 

Our clients have purchased a beautiful Cape Cod in the Raleigh Hills neighborhood and are thoughtfully renovating both inside and out. Here is the plan for the front garden. We completed installation from our design this week. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The format of the garden is a hub centered with the picture window of the living room. A circular lawn bordered by a flagstone path flanked by two rectangular lawns.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The path flows directly off the brick path leading to the front door. Intersects the circular path and wraps around the west side of the house as it passes through a small rose garden. Dwarf Boxwoods line the front of the house. 

 

 

 

 

 

The focal point is an over-sized fountain basin used as a planter with seasonal interest. It took 4 of us to muscle this into place.
