About This GalleryThe Pickards had a small grassy front yard with a bunch of mismatched shrubs. They wanted a peaceful retreat and great curb appeal. I designed for them a partial wall with trellis painted to match the house trim. We also added a bubbler fountain with olive and amber recycled glass to catch the sunlight, covered the front walk with cut, buff flagstone and included a simple palette of native-looking plant material for seasonal interest and color. Feng Shui principles were used for a calm feeling.
