Eastern landscape design ideas flavor yard overhaul
The Grays wanted a custom landscape design and installation that included elements from Eastern landscape design principles. They had ideas for the overall look as well as some specific elements, and we incorporated them into the landscape design.
A low-maintenance landscape, incorporation of a water feature, the use of low voltage lighting and a path from the driveway to the front door were musts. The challenge was blending the modern feel of the home with Asian elements in the landscape.
“We had a few ideas of what we wanted, but had no idea of how to proceed or what plants would flourish in our climate zone,” says Jason Gray. “After talking with Perfect World Landscaping, we knew that they understood our concepts and goals, and we were blown away by their suggestions.”
We designed the landscape to include specific plants, boulders and a curved pathway that give the feel of an Asian theme without screaming “Japanese Garden.”
We selected hardy low maintenance plants that complemented the design of the landscape and the style of the house. Along the path, a water feature and artfully placed creative focal points. Low-voltage lighting provides for after-hours enjoyment of the landscape and safety along the path.
The result is a beautiful combination of style and function that compliments both the client’s house and personality.
“Our plans were substantial and included trees, shrubs, ornamental grasses, boulders, lighting, water feature and a driveway. The entire job happened as planned, on time, and according to the budget.
“We could not have been happier, and we received countless compliments from both our neighbors and passersby,” Jason says.
