This client loved their lake home but a few years after a landscape redesign from a different local architect, things just weren’t quite right. “Creating gardens that not only perform well (the right plant in the right place), but also look artistic and natural in the space is critical, “ says Shelly Christie, owner and designer at graziano gardens. Disjointed lake side perennial beds were joined and enhanced to make sense aesthetically. Less obstacles to mow around make lawn maintenance easier. Unhappy plants were relocated to correct sites and many beds around the property were redefined, amended with soil enhancement and tweaked for planting appeal.
