SUNNY RESIDENTIAL

A Residence in Lincolnwood

This is a tour around the gardens of this Lincolnwood home.


Stately tall Sweet Joe Pye Weed, Eupatorium purpureum, (left center) acts as a portal to the garden entrance.


A downspout with a garden hose inserted into it and an on-off valve are used to create this waterfall feature which irrigates a Rain Garden.


Another downspout feature on the other side of the house.


A flagstone path leads to other garden areas. Note the weathered picket fence and old wagon wheel features.


Oak Leaf Hydrangea, Hydrangeas quercifolia, has a beautiful appearance in the Fall with its orange leaves and interesting bark. It even looks nice now with its beautifully shaped leaves.

It is most impressive, however, in the Summer when it produces beautiful masses of pyramid-like flower clusters.


Ths raised bed is really a Rain Garden fed by one of the downspouts we saw earlier.A


Raised bed with flagstone edging details.


A rustic old fence makes a nice backdrop for a bed of wildflowers and grasses.


We created this flagstone patio and terraced wall with some of the tons of stone we found on the site, left over from previous work.


Even this weathered old picnic table looks like it has found a home. It fits right in.
