    Oak Park Il vintage looking pavers utilized to compliment the new addition to the rear of this 110+ yr old home.

     

    Though not completed as of yet, we will eventually add in a new back paver walkway, a new lawn oval, plus a landscaped perimeter utilizing shade tolerant species, and many natives. The ribbon of  chocolate colored clay paver is called ‘Copthorne’, very reminiscent of the old street paver. Picks up the colors of the house quite nicely!

    Landscape renovations underway: we pull all the old landscape, several invasive  Norway maple are culled to allow more light. We also rebuilt the old flagstone wall with ‘found’ stone- buried by years of organic debris.

    the final product a year later. Xeriscaping used here (drought tolerant species for this hot south exposure, plus passive solar with a deciduous maple allowing full sun in winter- much needed shade in the heat of summer. Eventually casting shade on the sunniest part of the home.
