About This Project

The client wanted to convert the lawn boulevards of their corner lot to pollinator plantings, providing an opportunity to visually showcase the gardens. They wanted a boulevard landscape attractive to pollinators with a neat, organized appearance. ¬†We created a design with natives, cultivars of natives, and other perennials with excellent pollinator value. We call this a ‘blended’ landscape. Our team also used the client’s existing pavers, matching it to their front walk, to create a walkway across one of the boulevards. Two areas of the boulevards were lowered specifically to capture and infiltrate runoff from the residence and sidewalk.
