This almost ½ acre backyard was designed with multiple interests in mind. First, a private oasis, with an outdoor living area to enjoy the landscape gardens. Next, to create interest to leave the patio area and explore the gardens.
Blooming plants, changing leaf colors and various textures were used to create interest throughout the season. Winter interest is achieved by the use of well-placed evergreens and perennial grasses.
Attention to plant choices was also made to attract many species of native Wisconsin birds. This “Backyard Paradise” has homes on two sides. The landscape was designed to create privacy from the outside, yet leave open areas inside that lead you through the gardens.
