Moon Garden Transformation
The side yard was a neglected mess overrun by weeds, virginia creeper and sumac. After clearing the area, I noticed the perfect branch for a swing. That, my friends, was the spark that set the journey to the beautiful moon garden.
The side yard was a neglected mess. It was a naturalized area in front of a woodland. Once I installed the moon garden, I wanted to draw people over to the sound of water. Voila! the magical pond area was formed.
Former Horse Pasture Transformed
The electric company trimmed back branches and trees that died from hurricane Irma after the transformer kept blowing and setting the woods on fire. Well, they cut it back so much we could see the road. I felt we needed more privacy, and so we transformed the pasture into a beautiful garden island full of crepe myrtles, drift roses, muhly grass, annual flowers and more.
