There is no better excuse to get out of the office than a site visit on a gorgeous late fall day. We took advantage of the blue skies by stopping in to see a client in Montgomery and surveying the work we've accomplished at their home.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Notice how the espalier vines on the white brick wall are really starting to take off. And the crisp lines and repetition of the bluestone stepping stones gives this garden's visitors clear direction about where to travel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

An ornate planter elevated on a plinth adds a lot of detail in this small space.  With its evergreen planting, this terra cotta planter provides year round interest-- a big feat in such a small courtyard.

Designing the garden for this gorgeous home was quite a joy. The richly-colored brick and the architecture by @jamesfcarterarch made a big impact, so we chose to highlight these features with a rather simple garden design. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The greens of the boxwoods, trees and ground cover  complement the red color of the home. And a swath of lush ground cover that pours into crisp the boxwood hedge lining the drive gives the approach to the entrance a very inviting feeling.

I had the amazing opportunity to present to the Dallas Women's Club in November of this year and share some of my work and my stories. This project in particular resonated with many in attendance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is a garden we created in the aftermath of the terrible tornadoes that ravaged Tuscaloosa in 2011. Having just experienced a storm which destroyed many homes and schools, these Dallas women could relate in a very personal way to the story of this project. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It was sad to drive around town and see the broken homes and fallen trees. I pray that sharing the story of this garden gave others a glimmer of hope in that difficult moment for the beautiful things that can come in the aftermath of a storm.

It's always fun to do a project for a good friend. Lucky for us, our friend in Atlanta has a great eye for design and a lovely home to match it! Here's a shot of some work we recently did on the front of his home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We kept the design simple, sticking to classic low boxwood hedges surrounding the front lawn. Large, round boxwoods break up the hedges at the corners and the entrance, and ground cover fills in like a green carpet around the perimeter. Simple, but just right!

This home, designed by @jamescarterarch, was an interesting project for us to work on. Because the entry door was shifted to the left, it created an opportunity to use a lovely @elegantearthinc table as a focal point when approaching from the drive. The planters, also Elegant Earth, flanking either side of the entrance walkway, make a great statement at the front of this home.

After being introduced to this client by our good friend @danawolterinteriors, we set out to create a beautiful rose garden that would be viewed from the covered terrace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The brick walls bordering the garden create a room, and the delicate petals and free form of the roses help to soften the edges of the hardscape. A @curreyco bench creates the perfect place to sit and enjoy the garden.
