What would have otherwise been a medial task turned difficult when work began on this project. A large man-made berm had become overgrown for a family who recently purchased this home. The soil conditions were inconsistent; largely made up of fill dirt with heavy clay. A great deal of time was spent remediating the soil in an effort to ensure optimum plant health. The final planting design provides a handsome buffer and entrance planting for this residence and uses both native and non-native plants that can withstand the harsh conditions of this very busy road.
