The before photos on this project speak for themselves. Our client contacted us for a complete makeover of the front of their contemporary home. The front entry was in need of major help and they wanted to remove the narrow deck that wrapped around the front of the home. They gave us inspiration photos of cantilevered steps in concrete but since the project is in Wisconsin, we thought that stone would be more durable long term without the chance for cracking. As part of creating a new entry into the home, we created an angled approach, with a new bluestone porch in conjunction with the new steps. Natural cut stone was also used for the new retaining wall which encloses a raised planting bed. Within that bed is a specimen Seven-Son Flower tree. Additional plantings were designed, wrapping around the house to the breezeway. The front landscape is actually part of an overall design for the house and property, with the pictured work representing phase one. Low voltage landscape lighting completes the design. Phase two is scheduled for installation in 2024.
