New retaining walls which gave way to new flat usable space for outdoor recreation.
New patio surfacing of New England bluestone set in an ashlar pattern,
New outdoor cook area , steps to second level, hot tub, lawn , ornamental planting and a water feature.
The planting layout began the other day.
We have about 2 more days of planting and then will work on the irrigation , mulch and directing the lighting.
In the photo below the retaining wall planting is laid out.
Plants are : Agave attenuatta, red banana, aeoniums, cyperus, ornamental grasses, colocasias and climbing wall sucking ficus pumila.
Personally I don’t find the wall objectional, but the owner wants to see it clothed in green, so ficus pumila was chosen.
