Client desired artsy feeling in a cool woodsy setting. Then she took off for Europe, sure I’d do fine without her being there to answer questions. This was pre-cell phone days. She loved the end result.
Client wanted a primarily drought tolerant garden, with lush plantings around the pond and new 2’x6’x3′ vegetable boxes.
Exposed aggregate with a tiny bit of colorant in the concrete mix.
Drip irrigation allows great flexibility so that areas closest to clients’ sitting area can have plants using more water with areas farther away using xeriscape or drought tolerant plants.
This recently retired client who lived alone met a lot of her neighbors because of the new garden.
