This St. Clair West front yard was needing an upgrade. The porch was crumbling. the position of the existing walkway was small and in an odd place not bringing one into the front door.
The client wanted the walkway to start near the middle of the property. To create interest, the light grey concrete paver that we chose was a linear one which was used in alternating rectangles changing the direction in each one.
The front porch was completely demolished and rebuilt with a poured concrete foundation and faced with black Indian flagstones.
Planting was also modern with Yews up against the house, low lime coloured ornamental grasses to contrast in front, Boxwoods, Hydrangea, and a Beech tree. When the Yew and Boxwood planting matures and is shaped into hedges, this front yard will have great curb appeal.
