Riverdale Front Yard
Award Of Excellence Winner/Landscape Ontario - This home north of the Danforth in Toronto was a typical minimally landscaped front yard with a walkway that led straight into the porch steps. - The new design creates a more meandering entryway with the entrance on the opposite side. The other portion of the walkway is hidden by a low horizontal board screen creating a sense of mystery. - The screens on the property lines create a sense of enclosure and privacy, also adding architectural interest. - New wrap-around porch steps create a more relaxed approach to the porch while the glass railings give an updated look to the property. - Ornamental grasses including Maidengrass and Sioux Blue modernize the look, while the Everlasting Revolution Hydrangea and Bloody Cranesbill add colour. - Thirty-one lights give this front yard a spectacular look in the evenings.
