Last summer, we asked our landscape architect Jenn Nawada to come up with a long-term "dream plan" that would incorporate several major changes we hope to put in place over the next several years (feel free to ask Joe about his planned pickleball court).
No doubt we were pretty excited by what she came up with. Jenn's a great listener, who was able to integrate what we wanted with a few fun ideas of her own, including a flower cutting garden (love the idea, though I'm not sure my green thumb will be up to the task). There will still be a few more iterations of the plan as we move along, but it's really fun to think through the specifics.
Since Joe and I don't know too much about plants, we asked Jenn and Roger Cook to recommend native, historically accurate, easy-to-maintain plants that will be reasonably priced and offer some privacy in the long term. Tall order, huh? They actually have a few ideas that meet most of these criteria, and we're looking forward to making some decisions.

interesting on the live still cameras, same photos as yesterday, I due not like this new system, before you could back up and browse a day or two if you missed a few,#
Plus big safety problem, has anyone else notices that the crew does NOT wear their safety glasses!
It would be nice if someone could turn the interior cams around so we can see something besides the walls.
That has to be a TOH first, a web cam shot of a web cam looking at a window,(10-14-11) c'mon guys a little more of a tease of the project, PLEASE!!!!!!
I think we got banished because they were doing the floors. Hopefully someone will bring us back inside on Monday.
thanks for the information and ideas that you give, this can help me in doing the work.
Landscaping is considered an improvement to one's house. It is exciting to plot landscaping to further the aesthetics.
Great post...thanks for the reminder to blog about the everyday things that people want to read. As a real estate agent, I too struggle with what to blog about. Thanks!
I have done a landscaping project for my house and I really love the outcome. I am pretty much sure that you'll get a very good looking landscaped house soon.
The landscape was done well by the Roger and his crew. Glad to see they followed the professional advice on that. But these homeowners really missed the mark on the rest of the house especially the interior colors and design. They sunk a lot of bucks into that project and it was the best use of funds. I was shocked at the dinning room...dinning rooms should be warm and inviting, this is not and it's the same for the kitchen/family room....ugh, looks like a garage sale is going to take place. Hope the next project is better.
