Wash

Because this area is located between two houses and watered regularly by a large downspout, it is constantly dark and wet.

Our landscaping ideas included removing the shrubs along the fence to admit more light and replace them them with sun loving plants.

Then we added a stream bed ...



...with two wetland pools - one at each end - planted with Cardinal Flower and Blue Flag Iris.

A path follows the stream.

A large, blue Chinese sitting vase was placed under the linden tree for added interest.



A bench overlooks the top pool, planted with Cardinal Flowers.

Wind chimes, created from pieces of mirror, hang over the lower pool, surrounded by Blue Flag Iris and Thimbleweed.
