The homeowner is a fan of JVI Secret Gardens on Facebook. She liked our look and decided to give us a call. We were more than happy to answer!
We began this landscaping project by tearing out any plants the client didn’t want. She had us bring in a varied selection of shade perennials for her space. We laid out the plant material in a suggested fashion and let the homeowner give final approval before planting.
She gave us a couple of small edits and the plant layout was finalized. Then we moved to the next step – the front yard water feature!
Our client had us install an Aquascape Spillway Bowl. These features are low-maintenance and easy to install. To put the icing on the cake, we installed 10 landscape lights to illuminate the new water feature and existing trees.
A few challenges presented themselves with this project. Her yard was a small space, which made it hard for us to use our machines. There was a hard day’s rain to deal with too. But, we were able to finish the front yard in 5 days for $10,000.
Then, she had us move around to the backyard landscaping project she had in mind.
The client wasn’t pleased with the boxwoods that surrounded the backyard and wanted to replace them. Also, a birdbath-style water feature was difficult to level and gave her dogs a convenient place to dig.
She had us start by completely removing the existing water feature. We installed a pondless waterfall like the one in her mother’s home in Gatlinburg, TN. An outdated smoke bush that wasn’t performing well was replaced with a Japanese Maple.
The backyard work took approximately 2 days with a $7,000 budget.
