Landscape Perfection – Bari & Chris Carley
Evergreen shrubs fill large island plantings along flowering annual pathways and front lawn specimen evergreens. Small retaining walls support raised beds give way to additional plantings. The backyard includes tiered decks leading to an in-ground pool surrounded by cypress and assorted perennial shrubs planted on retaining walls.
Rambling Garden – Timothy & Constance Byrnes
Start your walk in the front yard and view the sculptured gardens that wrap around the property’s perimeter and lead you to the side lawn gate and spacious backyard. As you enter, you will be greeted by a wraparound porch, in-ground pool and patio. Large defined plantings, potted annuals and planted retaining walls support an assortment of shrubs and perennials.
A central walkway welcomes you, as you view miniature boxwoods and take note of the large island plantings. Hostas create an outline that frames adjacent woods. Statues and archways give the visitor pleasant distractions which adds to the character of this garden’s balance.
This beautiful home situated on a cul-de-sac welcomes the visitor with formal gardens, but there is so much more. Enter the backyard where you will observe a deep water Koi pool and water fall. A large in-ground pool with expansive garden borders and lawn area is surrounded by layered plantings accented with sprawling stone walls.
View the great lawn that features island plantings that contain a mixture of perennials emphasizing single trees. The back yard gives way to an in-ground pool with various planters. Plantings of Cannas and blueberry add the right mixture to highlight the surrounding decks and welcoming patio furniture.
