op patio
Before we started work on this Oak Park yard, it already had a brick patio and walkway, concrete bird bath and decorative ceramic pots.

But the plants along the patio were overgrown...

...and the yard was out of control.

The decorative bird bath was hidden behind overgrown grasses.

We weeded and replanted...

...and incorporated the decorative pots into the garden; added pebbles and small weathered branches for texture. decorative pots

We reorganized and cleaned up the plants along the brick, repotted and repositioned the decorative ceramic pots.

Weeds were removed and new plants planted around the relocated bird bath.

When we finished, the gardens were better defined, the stonework was better incorporated into the design and the whole effect was a more peaceful space.
