Edgecomb Residence Landscape

Redesigned-planting-bedThis landscape project was previously landscaped, and Forever Green was hired to redesign and revamp the existing landscape. We wanted to incorporate what was originally installed and enhance it to give the clients the most landscape value for their dollar. There were two main landscape challenges for the Edgecombs residence. The first was a number of live springs that ran all year throughout the property that were eroding much of the property including the driveway. The second was the steepness of the driveway and the blind corners that dropped off to the woods. To solve the first problem we excavated the runoff areas into ditches all the way to the source of each spring. Then we lined the ditches with a HDPE pond liner and covered with natural stone. This conjugated the water to designated paths away from the house and driveway and also gave a very nice looking landscape feature. We solved the second problem by building moss boulder retaining walls to widening the driveway and create a barrier on the steep sharp corners.

Forever Green also revamped the existing planting beds with new edging, mulches, and plantings. We also ran through and improved upon the existing sprinkler system.
