Our Chinese clients wanted to replace the existing, generic landscape with something more modern and in the vein of an Asian garden. The new front walk is composed of concrete panels which connect to a brick front seating area. An existing magnolia was saved, but all of the other plants in the front yard are new. The new circular plant beds in the backyard were inspired by the existing half-circle patio. A slate chip rock garden and bands of groundcover surround a new gravel sitting area.
