    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.

    Another view from the west. This landscape should compliment this grand dame with several redbuds with their pink blossom in spring, plus serviceberry, white pine for cover and winter green, sumac, dwf. coral roses, Everlow yew, azalea, and more…

    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.
