[b]Front Garden Design Proposal [/b]
The front gardens of this home have been designed upon the clients request based on photos and measurements supplied by the client. The request was to have low maintenance gardens that were deer resistant and would die back in the winter months, which led to the selection of perennials for these spaces.
The design was based on a more contemporary style, using ornamental grasses to provide height to the garden, while not blocking the views while sitting on the porch, and perennials with colorful blooms and foliage to provide interest and texture to the garden.
The garden is has groupings of perennials to provide more impact rather than just a single perennial on its own. This will be more pleasing to the eye and provide a longer bloom time.
All plants in the garden can be cut back in the fall to ground level and then the snow, should it fall, will sit nicely in the garden. However, should you want some height and bones to the garden during the winter months the grasses can be left in place and cut back in the spring.
All the perennials selected are long blooming, or reblooming and will require minor/minimal maintenance in the way of deadheading to encourage new blooms and maintain shape.
I would suggest mulching the beds to reduce maintenance in the form of watering and weeding. Mulching will also make the plants “pop”. A natural colored mulch such a dark brown would work best in this situation.
Plants should be planted using a transplant fertilizer to help encourage the proper development of the root system. A proper watering schedule should be set once the plants are in place.
If you have any questions about the plant selected or need substitution suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
The existing walkway, should be refreshed by using brick stainer.
