The design brief for this garden was to create an inviting entry with a woodland feel that would complement the home’s earthy color scheme and thoughtful architectural details.  Majestic Sequoia sempervirens ‘Aptos Blue’ (Aptos Blue Coastal Redwood), with its pendant deep blue-green branches, shields the expanded porch from the afternoon sun.  Selected for its ability to look good in sun or shade, Carex divulsa (Berkeley sedge) makes a lush ground cover, weaving through the trees and along the new slate walk.  In fall, muhlenbergia capillaris explodes with feathery pink plumes.

 

“We get so many compliments on our yard, and words can’t match our feelings – we LOVE the plan that June created for us. We’d hire her again in an heartbeat.” — Christina and Scott
