Winter Pines Home's Landscape Rennovation a Success

This is a cool corner lot set at Donraven and Summerfield in Winter Pines.

Because of the size of their front yard we opted to use a roto-tiller on the existing sod and having the new material delievered and placed for easier installations.

After the couple and their infant baby moved into their new home they quickly completed the interior rennovations to their expectations but the landscaping still hadn't been touched.

Originally planned were 3-4 foxtail palms for height elements to break up the plain linear line of their home. In the installation however we went with 2 magnolias, a ligustrum, and eugenias to complete that goal to correspond with our clients plant taste.

This bed was added on the side of the driveway and continued the layout of the other beds, using golmounds. lorepetelums, and jasmine.

Construction at Conway Home Completed

After the consturction the Conway's home backyard has become a paradise for adults and kids to enjoy.

Just one of many seating areas covered by the pergola which will have a shade clothe and vine on it later.

The way from the top patio over the train exhibit to the lower patio includes this wooden bridge up off the ground over a foot to allow the train to pass.

View of the train exhibit area in the proccess of being built. In the picture are some of the model size accesories like the tunnel for the train.

Another view of the train area and the wooden bridge which connects the upper level to the lower which will have the train go under it.

Walkway and and stone steps to the wooden bridge. This is on the backside of the plant bed and the stone seating area.

The stone seat on the lower level which will have a shade tree grow behind and provide a great spot to view the train. This slab of rock weighed about 350 lbs. and was not easy to put in place.

The staggered flagstone walkway along the side of the house is bordered by jasmine which once filled in will set off the walkway even more.

Pavers in Baldwin Park, Ocoee, Avalon Park and Windermere

Pavers are the most popular thing right now. With the cold weather, much landscaping has been delayed in January and February but we have been doing paver projects like mad. We did gold travertine in Ocoee and noche travertine in Baldwin Park. A little Euro-Kobble cement paver job in Avalon Park and a very big one in Windermere, both in red/buff/charcoal color have rounded out the projects in the last couple of weeks. Another one in Baldwin Park with 16 by 24 inch travertine noche pavers is on the drawing board and that project will include a columned pergola with cedar top. The landscaping projects are just around the corner.
