The existing putting green at this home was past its prime, so we came in and gave it a facelift. More than just that, we created a garden around the putting green to make it more enjoyable to both play in and look at. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We reused the existing cast stone antique bench at the end of the putting green, enabling family or friends to enjoy the space.

When I started this project, I knew the first thing I wanted to do was remove the entire terrace and create a balcony. This door used to open up to a terrible concrete terrace with wrought iron railing, distracting from the beautiful home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We then used an antique balcony panel from @architecturalheritage and had @redmountainiron create additional panels to continue the pattern on the corners and sides. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Stepping out onto the balcony and looking at the climbing roses and lush flowerbeds was a treat for this homeowner.

Vines on the home are actually super low maintenance, and when I was designing the garden for my own home, I knew they would be the perfect addition to our exterior. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

After planting, we train them along a wire with velcro tape and then let them do their thing. We prune the stray shoots off about 3 times a year, that's it! A lot of times we use copper wire because it tends to last longer. For heavier vines, we often use a tension mechanism on the line to prevent the line from sagging long-term. No one wants that! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Do you have vines on your home?

With this project in Mountain Brook, AL, designed by @jamesfcarterarch, we wanted to create a formal lawn for playing croquette and other games. By adding the stone retaining, we were able to create a flat space needed for these games. The Adirondack chairs give family members a place to sit and watch the fun.

This was such a fun project in Mountain Brook where we completed a first phase not too long ago. We replaced the front terrace with bluestone, added a bluestone edging and re-sodded the front yard. The homeowner loved the first phase so much that she has now asked how she could add even more curb appeal to her home!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Our idea is to remove the vent in and replace with a decorative brick detail while also changing the lanterns out for a single overhead lantern with a custom bracket. What a difference that would make for this home, and we can't wait to get started!
