Colorful perennials are selected throughout the ‘Welcome Garden’ to contrast withe house and boulder walls.
The reds and orange plants have already attracted bee’s, butterflies and pair of hummingbirds.
View from the driveway as you approach the parking areas. along the side of the house large flagstones are added with steps taking you to the front porch.
We replaced a ramp to the front porch with stone steps and flagstone pathways. Along the edges of the pathway we planted low growing plants like Sedums, Thyme and Hen’s & Chicks. here is always something in flower from spring until late fall.
Many rock garden plants were added to cascade over the boulders, grow in-between the cracks and flower in shallow packets of soil.
We specified our own soil for the planting to insure that the alpine and rock garden plants remain free draining and dry. The soil was so successful that the plants used in-between joints and in the plant beds grew at a rate we have never seen before.
