The Cedar Nook

at Verona

Proceed through a portal into this immaculate plant-filled yard, where the butterflies and the bees dance through the air, plants thrive and the owners of this Verona home recharge with the help of bright colors in their very own botanical garden. Though this may be a smaller yard, we were able to find a way to utilize all the space for both functionality as well as beauty…

The portal of course being the cedar arbor perfectly matching the new cedar fence adding an element of privacy that these homeowners did not know before. Following the bluestone walkway, you are met with a spacious patio…

Surrounding the patio is the wide array of plantings filling the space with color and life. The mixture of evergreen shrubs, perennials, grasses and accent trees allows a new element of dimension to the whole yard. Providing softness to the yard which enhances the hardscaping material…

Tucked into the variety of plantings, you will find a fire pit patio nestled in its own secluded nook of sorts making it a destination place within the yard. A place for kids to make s’mores and tell stories, or adults to reminisce on memories with friends under the glow of the fire and twinkle of the stars. 

 

The eye catcher that makes this design whole is the addition of landscape lighting strategically scattered around the yard illuminating this masterpiece. From path lighting perfectly placed to help lead guests along the walkway to their destination, paired with string lighting hung above the fire pit which executes a certain ambiance for any occasion.
