SHADY RESIDENTIAL

A Home on a Corner Lot in LaGrange


THE PROBLEM:

The enclosed front porch, while being nice looking, still gives the owners the feeling of being indoors.


THE SOLUTION:

The front yard has been turned into a cozy sanctuary by adding shade-loving native plants and a bench which the owners use to let them connect with the neighborhood.


The front yard faces north, is fairly shaded, but everything here grows well.


An attractive-looking native plant garden on the shady side of the house.


This relatively inexpensive bench take advantage of the shade on the north side of the house. It sits on a "patio" of pine bark nugget mulch.

The material used for this purpose is very suitable, easy to use, looks good and is affordable.


The English Ivy climbing up the west wall was left alone. A short wall of cut granite blocks makes a border at the edge of the garden near the sidewalk.
