Case Studies


The clients had just finished building a home into a steep outcropping of granite. On the slope in front of the house, the builder had left them with a utilitarian wall made of manufactured blocks surrounded by compacted soil. The clients were excited to win a gift certificate for a design consultation that I had donated for a fundraiser at the local elementary school. After our initial meeting, the clients asked for a proposal to create terraces and plantings that would soften the concrete block wall and add curb appeal to their new home.
