Mid-century Front Garden Transformation in Northern California
Dig Your Garden Landscape Design
December 26, 2012 in Before & After
With a limited budget, we were able to transform and update this front garden with a new modern pathway, a small patio, and a variety of low-water and low-maintenance plants. The black mulch completes this modern landscape design transformation. By the Springtime the plants will fill in nicely, and provide a variety of heights, colors and textures.

Hello eyeglow. We amended the soil with a good quality compost before planting and adding the mulch. Ideally we would have "sheet mulched" the area if the client had the budget. It is a wonderful organic soil amending technique that involves adding layers of overlapping cardboard on top of the amended soil. This method suppresses weed growth while also improving the health of the soil. It breaks down over time. With this process, the mulch would be the final top layer.

Thank you Paradise! The client's budget was small, so we weren't able to implement some of the additional design touches I had intended, such as adding Mexican pebbles between the pavers and installing established/taller shrubs along the home's wall. But by cleaning up the landscape, creating a small sitting area, adding a variety of plants with colors and texture, and unifying the landscape with black mulch resulted in a major improvement! I'm looking forward to seeing how the plants fill in come Spring.
