The front gardens are done!, and we couldn't be happier. I installed the garden lighting, which is just a 12 volt plug and play system from Beacon Lighting. Works brilliantly, easy to install, and really adds dimension to the landscaping.
The lights can be moved, which is good because the planting will change shape as things grow.
We were so happy with Connor's work on the front and sides, that we asked him to return to install additional hedging along the back fence line, and around the pool. We had planted a combination of other plants in these areas, but the Radermachera "summerscent" that we used on the right boundary and around the fire pit is so beautiful and leafy that we needed more of it to complete the back yard.
Now all that's left is to start mowing this lawn, and waiting for summer to give these plants a boost.
