Hillside Front Yard Update
Our clients purchased a hillside home in Burlington’s southern hillside district and turned to us for a fresh look. They decided to remove the front entry vestibule that leads to a new small upper level terrace; a beautiful spot to enjoy the sunset. We added a foundation planting of Andromeda, Euomymus & small leaf Rhodedendron. Gently graded lawns extend from the top of the bank and provide a place for our client’s two young children to play.
The bank was retained by a new stone wall and steepened to provide for the terrace above. A curving stone stairway leads from the driveway to the upper terrace and front entry. The slope is planted with Juniper, Deutzia and dwarf Weigla. A south sloping pathway of lawn allows access to the upper level for the electric push mower and garden carts.
