Rue Sherwood Landscape Design

A renovated duplex called for fresh planting design. Front foundation plantings that complement the scale and order of the building facade provide multi-seasonal, colorful curb appeal. The driveway and side entrance are dressed up with cheerful plantings that soften the hard edges. A trellis and arbor add privacy to the existing fenced back yard, and layers of plantings create a lush garden sanctuary.
