Before & After

Filling in the Blanks

My client has been gardening for years.  She asked me to help her fill in areas that were empty or skimpy.  Much of her landscaping is perennials so my goal was to add structure through shrubs in areas that were mostly perennials.  The shrubs compliment the perennials and provide winter interest. Some areas were empty but anchored by shrubs.  In that instance I added perennials that were consistent with her colors, including repeating some already on site, and did well in the shade.  We were able to divide some of her perennials on site to reduce the number of new plants that were needed.
