Beautiful and functional, permeable clay pavers extend from the public front walk to a large rear courtyard and two garages.
Because of our long Chicago winters, the homeowner wanted an emphasis on evergreen plantings. The plant palette was selected to showcase a variety of the best evergreens for our Midwestern climate. This includes various hardy Boxwood (bred in southern Ontario for hardiness and good winter color), Azaleas, False Cypress, and Arborvitae. These evergreens, combined with select flowering Dogwoods that are particularly attractive set against a dark green backdrop, make a complete four-season garden. The Pine Hall clay brick pavers were selected for the driveway to complement the red brick and limestone buildings.
