Landscaping Project 1 - Come On In!

Entertaining Outdoor Style

Gather ’round the dining table or the fireplace, or simply sit back and enjoy the pleasant, colorful and peaceful surroundings. Once barren, this backyard is now THE place to be. Creative Garden Spaces was contracted to create the master garden design including site planning, hardscape recommendations and plant selection. Using detailed plans, the homeowner completed the project including […]

Landscaping Project 3 - The Great Backyard Makeover

The Great Backyard Makeover

By learning to see the yard as an extension of the home, this once uninviting space was transformed into an ultimate getaway. The outdoor kitchen area is paired with a covered patio for easy grilling and alfresco dining. Comfortable chairs pulled up to the fireplace invites lively conversation or makes a quiet place for contemplation. […]

Landscaping Project 4 - Year-Round Outdoor Living

Year-Round Outdoor Living

Creative Garden Spaces was hired to create an outdoor living space complete with full kitchen and fireplace. The catch? Stay within the parameters of the existing slate patio and cover the space for year-round use. A fireplace was positioned to support the outer corner of the space, large beams were installed to support the roof and […]

Landscaping Project 5 - Acreage in Transition

Acreage in Transition

Creative Garden Spaces was asked to create new spaces, and to refresh and enhance existing spaces, pulling them together in a way that draws the visitor from one space to another.

Landscaping Project 6 - Lakeside Living

Lakeside Living

Creative Garden Spaces designed and created spaces to reflect the homeowners clean, contemporary style. Plantings were kept to a minimum number of varieties, planted in mass. Large scale pavers maintained the clean look while a low-profile gas fireplace provided an unobstructed view of the lake. The existing large back deck was enhanced by defining “rooms” with […]

Landscaping Project 7 - The Magic of Color

The Magic of Color

What began as a “what to plant where” project turned into the reshaping of existing planting beds, removal and transplant of existing plants and a planting plan to fill in. In addition, Creative Garden Spaces expanded the existing deck and sitting area by installing a slate patio surrounded by plants. A pop of color unites the spaces […]

Project 8 - Pool Installation: Time for a Swim!

Time for a Swim!

Having a pool presents some security issues. Rather than the typical wood or chainlink fence, Creative Garden Spaces designed a custom lattice fence and arbor that leads guests from the driveway through the side yard and to the pool. Once inside the space, the pool was designed with the minimum amount of pool decking to place more […]

Landscaping Project 9 - When Every Inch Counts

When Every Inch Counts

With a little ingenuity, a narrow back yard is reworked to fit a fireplace sitting area, an outdoor kitchen and eating area.  Creative Garden Spaces expanded the existing deck to accommodate the cook island to include a 36″ KitchenAid grill, built-in ice chest and sink plumbed with cold water. The soapstone countertop has an etched and […]

Taming the Wild

Creative Garden Spaces was contracted to re-design the overgrown garden space, re-work the path surfaces and add a bit of lawn and a fence for the client’s two pugs. The result was a complete overhaul of the landscaped portion of the yard. Two large trees were removed, several rhododendrons were transplanted and the rest of the […]

Project 11 - Wedding Plans

Wedding Plans

An upcoming wedding put this yard re-do on the fast track. Challenges included handling elevation changes, defining large expansive areas and preserving the view. Creative Garden Spaces expanded the existing stamped concrete patio using pavers that simulate stone. Low walls, pathways and wide stairs traverse the property leading to specifically defined areas. An oval patio served […]
