We'll start with the before pictures.
After. Quite a change, yes?
"As new city dwellers in Everett, w are learning how to garden in small spaces. Our garden would be described as a small city lot, very much in progress. We are utilizing design elements that use vertical spaces, smaller plants, and multipurpose areas. For example, a stairway that incorporates a water feature, plants and a seating area.".
"We love color, fragrance, and year-round interest, so perennials and grasses ar a natural fit for us and our outdoor space. "
"we love being in our garden, and are learning more from our plants every day."
Agave in waiting.
I love this combination!
"Eventually, we hope that our garden bcomes an extension of our indoor living space; an evolving place of color, texture and life."
"one central design element is the rain garden, which will take water from our rooftop, and allow it to filter through the soil, eventually reaching the water table without stressing the already overburdened sewer system.
Walking a bit further back one finds a fenced area with this sign posted on the gate. You'd sneak a peek wouldn't you?
I'm looking forward to seeing what the Freeds do with this space next summer!
Have you started a list of projects for next summer?
