Arlington Landscaping Before & After

My clients Mimi and Quinn Smith in Arlington shared GardenWise’s recent work on their blog, Defining Sienna, which is named for their beautiful two year old daughter, Sienna.  I thought I’d share the blog post with everyone.

Mimi, Quinn, and  Sienna had a backyard that was unusable; covered with ivy, no entertaining areas — but with lots of potential!  We started by re-grading the yard and installing a new lawn, where Sienna now has a much larger space for play.  We added a patio that connects to the rear of the home, with a walkway and steps to the driveway. Lighting was added around the patio and entry walk for night time safety and to extend the use of the “new outdoor entertaining space.”  

 We also installed cascading wrap around porch steps that create a better flow between the home and the patio space.  Some new plantings were added around the patio area to soften, add color and seasonal interest. 

We had a great time creating and installing the first phase of the design — finishing just in time for Summer.  Mimi and Quinn have already purchased new patio furniture,  just in time for Sienna’s birthday celebration! 

Below are some ‘before and after’ pictures Mimi sent along:
