The evolution of a front yard landscape

This project is still underway... the electrician is scheduled to come in and wire things up and then the garden beds will be prep'd with soil, then covered with mulch for the winter. The final stage of the project will be planting the garden beds in Spring time.

The end result of the carefully planned out stone work...

I am still amazed at how sharp this project ended up looking. My clients did a lot of research on stone materials and worked closely with me on the colors and patterns that would be displayed in the design. The new front entrance to the home has enhanced the look and feel of the space. I can't wait to see it finished with the planting.

(Natural stone used in this project: Indiana Limestone coping for the steps, walls and boarder of the patio/walkway. Indiana Limestone wall stone for the planter wall and free standing riser faces in the steps. The dark infill of flagstone is one of my new favorites...Imperial Black Banas Flagstone)
