Traditional Landscape - River Hills, WI

After a major remodeling added new rooms to the right side of their River Hills home, our clients called us to re-invent their landscaping. Our conceptual design shown here, focused on creating some symmetry and balance across the now longer front facade of the home. With the large driveway out front, we also designed an outdoor foyer of paving, to draw more attention to the front door. All new foundation plantings and low voltage landscape lights were included in the plan.

With the new addition came a workout room on the back corner of the house. We designed a new bluestone patio outside this room for relaxing before or after a workout session. We also enhanced the plant beds around the remainder of the home and around the existing patio and fire pit area as part of our design. Our client had also recently added a She-Shed and we created a new cutting garden behind the shed.

Our client's dream is to have a large vegetable garden in the style of formal English gardens so we designed the layout you see here. A fountain off the She-Shed ties the garden to the rest of the backyard. A rustic fence and boxwood hedges surround the garden with raised vegetable planters and gravel paths between them. An herb garden with obelisk is the focal point in the center.
