One of my favorite things about writing the Before & After series here on Studio ‘g’ is that I get to read all kinds of little facts about the projects. The one I found for this week won 2 runner-up awards in the summer of 2012 from Kansas City Home & Gardens- one for best professional landscape and the other for best outdoor living space. Katie and NSPJ architects completed the project and I love how it turned out.
I’m a huge fan of having an area in the front yard that’s dedicated to relaxing…somewhere to wave to your neighbors on their evening walks while sipping a tall glass of lemonade. A space like this radiates warmth to visitors and makes the home feel effortlessly calm and collected. While the before photo wasn’t terrible, this is a perfect example of the impact you can have by adding a well planned selection of shrubs with varying textures alongside a new flagstone patio. Nice job, NSPJ Architects! -erin
