Personal Park in Madison
Once completely enveloped in an overgrown tangle of invasive Russian Olives, this homeowner wanted to get rid of the Russian Olives and have a unique space the entire family could enjoy. Sensitive to the ecosystem, we removed the invasive Russian Olives and renovated this landscape using a combination of understory elegant evergreen trees, and native flowering plants and shrubs to complete the design. We created a unique outdoor environment that reflected their objective and met with all their desires.
A seating area with fire pit is a great place for gatherings. Surrounded by lavender, it's an enticing fragrance that lightly beckons without being overwhelming.
A wide variety of perennials provide color, fragrance and beautiful bouquets to be cut and brought inside all season long.
Large, unique trees both evergreen and flowering provide a stunning backdrop even in the winter. Tall ornamental grasses dance in the breeze while a succession of blooms creates interest all season long. From her kitchen she has sweeping views of her own personal park, while various seating areas and courtyards entice the senses in other areas of the landscape.
