Just as the basement contractors are wrapping up a few loose ends, the landscapers came. They put in two prairie fire crabapple trees on either side of the entrance to our driveway.
The curves of the driveway are accented with blue angel holly and Tuscarora crepe myrtle. This should give definition to the driveway and help people see where it turns as they drive in and out. Either that, or it will just give them something more interesting to hit if they go off the asphalt!
The back will have two paver stone patios, as well as a wide walkway from the deck to the basement door. The walkway will have a retaining wall on one side, with another garden below the wall. We can't wait!
