50s garden

A large percentage of this garden was a disused vegetable patch, reached via wobbly concrete path. The new design required safe steps with high sides to aid mobility, a gently sloping path to allow easy access to the lawned area and lots of low maintenance planting.  Making the garden look right for the period of the house seemed both appropriate and fun.  (A curved raised shelf  displays 3 vintage 50's concrete planters and the lawn and pavers are edged in checkered bricks.) Can't wait to see it fully planted!
