We wanted to create a more open and welcoming feeling for the entrance–using color, texture, and varying heights of plants and the lovely granite birdbath.

This is before we took out the invasive plants, including the large Barberry bush on the right side of the house.

After we planted a variety of native plants, plus several nonnative lovely shrub roses. They wanted to keep the nonnative Japanese maple.

 My client wanted a peaceful oasis to enjoy.
