This is our fourth season at this property on Beverley Drive. Our began work for this client with a complete transformation of a corner property. After three full years it was time for a re-do. Amend soil, edge beds, trim all bushes, trim all perennials back, transplanting and dividing some current perennials and adding a few new perennials. Finally mulch all beds and bushes to provide a “final dressing” of the property. We are at about 75% completion if the front and side yard. Next week pending weather we hope to start in the back patio and small yard area
Large patches of Lily of the Valley and burnt-orange Day Lilies will be thinned out and trained to form a pattern. A peach Azalea in the side yard bed has been trimmed and been encouraged to grow, as prior, it was being crowded by the Lily of the Valley. And a new smaller Arbor Vitae evergreen will be planted in front of some gas line ground equipment. Our goal is to provide attractive coverage.
Last year we added a pretty amazing perennial ground cover to the front center bed. It’s called “Blue Blanket” (Creeping Mazus). This creeper has a fluffy blanket appearance, is bright green all summer and is so easy to cut back. It thrives in full sun and it produces the sweetest tiny blue/purplish flower. It is sturdy, it can he walked on and grows very quickly. We highly recommend. And it’s affordable; a six pack planter was $20. (See below) Blue Blanket provides a tidy appearance and is a very low maintenance way to fill a bed.
A new Knock Out Rose bush ($39) was added to the real left side corner of this bed. It’s doing very well. We are anxious to see it’s new blooms this year.
Do stay tuned for additional progress and photos.
REVISED – Mon – 2/21 – 5:44 pm
Today was so gorgeous and this very nice corner property is ”looking good.” Believe it or not, this sloped area in front of the new fence, took six hour to complete. Infested with a low lying creeping weed. We saved some to share with the PFX grounds crew. It’s also surrounding the grassy area by the adjacent building near the laundry room area. A permanent solution needs to be implemented. Attached is a video of the completed work along with a video of all the bushes on the property that have been edged and mulched. We hear rain is coming tomorrow so we hope to get all the beds mulched and then present a final video of the whole property. Our next project is four doors over.
We really enjoyed working in this wonderful sunny and warm day. Looking forward to better weather on Wednesday so we plan to return then.
“Contessa” says….. it’s all good!
