Climate-Ready Rancher Update

Project Summary

Our climate-ready design philosophies were just what the updated aesthetic called for in this front yard remodel design. Our smart client was looking for a new spatial composition, less work, less impact on the environment. Retaining the still-healthy extant Dogwood tree, and the site’s natural privacy buffers, we carefully constructed the new look, minimizing impact on site soils. Poor drainage was corrected, social space added, raised beds for food production, SMART® irrigation solutions, stone footpath access and guess what? NO MOWING! Flying in with the “fun & functional” is a fabulous favorite for us Angels!
