We are finally to what every house needs…landscaping. The roof is still going on, the cedar shakes for the details are on the way and the custom window is coming soon—I hope. The biggest thing happening now is the landscaping. Stone columns, gravel and stone steps, gravel drive and tons of beautiful green plants are going in. The specimen tree in front is a gorgeous European beech with burgundy leaves that I found in the back of Highlands Lawn and Garden. Hydrangea, ferns, hosta, geraniums, lambs ear, ladies mantle, inkberry and tons more are either in the ground or being installed any day now. Landscaping sets the mood for what’s inside waiting for you. It welcomes you with the sound of gravel crunching under your feet, and calming green plants leading you to the front door. Check back soon for more of the house reveal!
