Backyard respite
Private residence, Neenah, Wisconsin
Landscaping designed and installed by Stonehenge
Brick Paving & Landscaping, Appleton, Wisconsin

The homeowner travels a lot for business and wanted a backyard that felt like a getaway for her and her friends in the evenings. However, the backyard’s slope and lack of depth presented several challenges. There was also a fence on two sides of the yard hiding a busy street. With the homeowner’s love of perennials, the objective was pretty clear: use layered plant material to screen the fence and traffic noise, fill the planting beds with color through every season, construct a two-tiered patio that moved laterally to conserve yard depth, and warm the patio up a night with landscape lighting.

Graceful Southern garden
Private residence, Hilliard, Florida
Landscaping designed and installed by Callahan Garden Center, Callahan, Florida

The challenge was to create a garden with an Old South look that would offer a place to relax. The cedar gazebo has a copper roof from Vixen Hill, and the 200-gallon East Palatka next to it provide visual screening as well as a noise filter from a nearby highway. The concrete four-tier fountain also helps to mask traffic noise, and a 200-gallon Magnolia DD Blanchard with a skirt of Endless Summer Hydrangeas adds to the theme. Mountain Mist flagstone in a bed of red gravel, surrounded by brown river rock, provides a natural-looking path throughout the garden.

For their new home, the family wanted a unique, low-maintenance landscape that would wow family and friends. A water feature, including a waterfall, was placed in a recessed area outside of the home gym so the owners would have a relaxing view while working out. A rock garden finished off the remainder of the front walkway.
