The Moore Residence

I think the number of posts on my blog over the last year gives a good indication of how things have been for me lately.  Busy.  And that hasn’t changed much now so this one’s just going to be short and sweet.  Below is a landscape plan for a backyard I finished earlier this year for the Moore family.  This plan reflects their needs and desires (including relatively low maintenance and year-round appeal) and offers solutions for some of the existing site problems.  This landscape had to exude peace, grace and serenity, so summer foliage colors include dark greens, blues, and the occasional gold tones, with flower colors providing appropriate contrast and color boosts throughout the year.  Elegant specimens were chosen, such as the Weeping Cedar of Lebanon, the tiered June Snow Giant Dogwood, and a prostrate, trailing cultivar of Canadian Hemlock, sited on a gentle slope to help showcase this habit.  If you’re planning on doing landscaping this spring or summer and need design services now is the perfect time to get that ball rolling.  Time that is invested up front in a quality design plan can save a lot of sweat, heartache and money in the long run.

    • Thank you Ryan, I use pencil/ink. Though software would probably save a bit of time, my artistic touch would not shine through, nor certain nuances be easily achieved. And I do very much enjoy the drawing process. The design plans come with detailed instructions on how the owners can do the installation themselves or they can of course opt to hire someone for the plan implementation, which the Moores decided to do. One of these days I will need to head back for photos!
