It’s been a busy summer! A couple of weeks ago, we designed a front garden for this client in Chicago. We removed a couple of shrubs that weren’t doing well or had already died and replaced them with thriving new shrubs, appropriate for the light conditions in the yard. With time and care, the shrubs will continue to grow and fill in the space. The variety of color, texture and blooming seasons will give this space interest and beauty throughout the year.
After cleaning up the space in the back, we planted a few shrubs in front of their Limelight Hydrangea shrub and a few other plants to fill in the space even more.
We also filled planters on the front porch and back deck with a variety of flowers and plants, mostly suited for shady conditions. We even created a small planter for her children to grow some small edible plants.
