Marion Street Residence  

Cathe Mitchell, landscape architect

This garden renovation gives the owners more usable space and lower maintenance. A shade garden in the front provides a quiet spot separated from the street by new low walls and existing evergreen trees.  The walls were designed to reflect the style of the house.  Much of the lawn was replaced and some eliminated in favor of step stones, ground covers and shrubs.  New walks and raised vegetable beds provide an inviting background for entertaining around the new pergola.
