Peace and Serenity

The Hartman’s had inherited a jumble of plants in their small outdoor space, which is sandwiched between houses in a wonderful planned community. Their goals were: Peace, Serenity, Privacy and much less work. We kept the mature Japanese Maples and the original paver flooring, but most of the perennial plants and the country-style arbor were given away to good homes.

Now, carefully designed cedar screens provide privacy for the hot tub and outdoor shower, as well as a pretty backdrop for important views. New evergreen plants were selected for their quiet green peaceful qualities. Simple clear-cedar fences hide the garbage and utility areas, helping to maintain the serenity.
