Natural Stone Front Entrance & Retaining Wall

This customer wanted a fresh green and white themed landscape to match the color and style of the home. It resulted in a very clean, upscale, modern look for the home and landscape. Our designer replaced a failing concrete stoop with mortared flagstone that continued to lead to the driveway. The designer primarily used green and white foliage perennials to compliment the white stone. However, we chose a Japanese Maple as the focal point of the entrance. This weeping variety is perfect due to its unique shape, and gorgeous foliage. Along the side of the home, a retaining wall was put in place to soften the slope of the lawn. An Ornamental pear off the side of the house will add height and pretty spring color to the home.
