CARMICHAEL | SUBURBAN RETREAT
This Carmichael California home had a dry and dusty landscape full of weeds, rocks and “volunteer” trees and shrubs in all the wrong places. For this front to back remodel, we were asked to create a livable landscape where friends and family could enjoy outdoor entertaining in the back and the new owners could feel pride of ownership with a new front and side yard. On a limited budget, we incorporated a new irrigation system complete with water efficient drip lines for the shrub areas. To create a shady retreat, four new trees were added to the back yard and shrubs and perennials were chosen to provide year-round interest with minimal maintenance. Hummingbirds and butterflies can now be seen flitting through this lush and easy-going garden.
