Transforming A Chicago Staple

This time around we retooled a classic curb appeal style to be more modern and environmentally friendly. Going on trend with people ditching their lawns, which require lots of excess water, and going for something a little more off the beaten path.

This is what we were working with. This sort of front yard formation is a Chicagoland tradition. Defining a bed against the house with a green lawn is a very classic use of the space.

As you can see we decided to reclaim the space and take it in a completely new direction. Very excited with the results. This way I get more color and options.
