Every beautiful garden starts as a work-in-progress, and this project in Mountain Brook is no exception. The first step was removing all plants and (sadly) the dying dogwood that previously blocked the front view of the home. This gave us a totally clean slate to work with.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Widening the front porch, then adding a stone veneer and bluestone step treads, totally transformed the entrance. The low boxwood hedge along the foundation will grow together with time, and color will spill out of the window boxes and flower beds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the porch will be terra cotta planters from @eyeofthedaygdc with rounded boxwoods. The soft orange of these planters will add just enough warmth by the front door to bring the whole design together.
