We had the pleasure of collaborating with Paul G. Smith Paving on this driveway and turf grass installation. Due to incorrect drainage in the front of the property, the overall lawn grade needed correction as well as added height to accommodate the finished top coat of the driveway. This project included a full removal and reconstruction of the soil profile in the front lawn area, along with the installation of proper species and cultivar of turf grass sod and seed to finish the project. We enjoyed teaming up with Paul Smith Paving to provide our client with an upgraded driveway to accent their charming home.
In addition, a Kohler Power System generator was recently installed at this home to assure full function even in the worst weather conditions. However, this created an eyesore amongst the beauty of the rest of the property. We installed a natural screening using two natural berm shrub gardens. These were strategically placed to screen the generator from both the home as well as the new driveway. Once the berm shrub gardens were in place, Ilex meserveae (Blue Princess Holly) and Ilex verticillata (Winter Berry) were methodically installed to fully conceal and block the view of the generator. To assure that these new natural screening gardens would continue to thrive, we installed drip irrigation and compost leaf mulch. Now our client can enjoy the function and security of a generator without sacrificing the integrity and natural beauty of their woodland property.
