Hey everyone! I hope you guys were able to finish up all your fall gardening this year! I wanted to plant some bulbs this fall but didn’t get around to it (again)….does anybody else have that issue? Anyway, I wanted to share a new Before & After with you, from one of my favorite landscape designers, Michael Muro. Michael works out of Seattle, Washington and he sent me this project a few weeks ago. What started out as a common, run-of-the-mill front yard was nicely transformed into a facade that is much more inviting.
By leveling the ground with the help of a beautiful stone wall, Michael was able to turn this front yard into a gorgeous space that appears to be much larger than before. I also really like the way he added visual interest by off-setting the steps leading down to the sidewalk- it draws the eye across the space much more steadily than before. It’s amazing how much of an impact a simple re-route can make, isn’t it? Thank you so much for sharing, Michael! We look forward to seeing more of your projects in the future! -erin
If you have a great landscape makeover that you’d like to share with the Studio ‘g’ readers, send us an email along with a couple photos!
