Due to a cold winter, some perennial plants were unable to survive harsh weather conditions. As a result, new front yard landscaping was desired and has been planned and executed in three phases.
Phase one included removing dead and overgrown plants shrubs in the front yard. With a 4×4 vehicle and heavy duty strap attached to the hitch and wrapped around the base of each shrub, each root ball was pulled out of the ground. The remaining plants were dug out with shovels and the soil was prepped for planting.
Phase two included selecting new perennial plants and shrubs based on species, projected growth size, fruit and bloom color, seasonal blooming, and climate tolerance.
Phase three was planting and lastly topping off the exposed soil with mulch to inhibit weed growth. The final outcome is an assortment of Azalea, Weigela, Kaleidoscope, and Burning Bush shrubs, along with a dwarf Weeping Ruby Falls Redbud tree. All of the plants were arranged to create a simple, low maintenance landscape with attractive curb appeal.
