Stunning Shade Garden

This beautiful garden on a corner lot surrounds a historic home in the Irvington Neighborhood. Creating native habitat was a primary goal as our clients were working on their Backyard Habitat Certification. We planted a variety of native plants in the front corner and throughout the design.

The lighting on property was very shady except for a sunny strip on the South Side where we placed garden boxes in the oversized parking strip. To add color and brighten up the shade we added perennials and grasses with blue, chartreuse and purple foliage.
