While the young couple of this recently purchased Bryant neighborhood mid-century modern home shared some ideas for what they wanted for their landscape, they also had some different and very specific visions.  They had agreed to separate the west facing front yard into a north section and south section. 

To the north, the husband wanted a low maintenance, shady woodland with a minimal color and plant palette.  His sensibilities leaned towards the modern with a desire for clean lines and rectilinear shapes. To the south, she wanted flowing lines and shapes with a more diverse plant palette – an “English-style perennial garden” with a good foundation so it wouldn’t be a bare patch of dirt in winter. 

Both were interested in a color palette including varying shades of purple, green and white – which worked well for tying it all together.

A fun project!
