Another GardenWise, Inc. CURB APPEAL Success!
Don’t miss tonight’s Curb Appeal on HGTV at 7PM with J. Mark White as the D.C. Landscape Design expert. “French Bistro Front Porch” features the GardenWise, Inc. crew installing Mark’s design work that transformed this neglected and dilapidated D.C. Capitol Hill row house into a true “Curb Appeal” success.
With the help of City Iron Works, who did a fantastic job bringing Mark’s ironwork designs to life, the new landscape, including the lower front brick wall, new front walkway from the curb, higher brick walls, new front steps, extensive multi-level planting, new patio, additional porch lighting, and garden accents, create the beautiful and much needed garden space that successfully separates and protects the home from the street. GardenWise, Inc. owns the rights to all of the landscape, hardscape, and ironwork design work seen in each episode of Curb Appeal that Mark appears in on HGTV.
Here’s a little secret and some fun insight into how some of these design programs are produced. This project actually took over three months to complete from start to finish. Yes, three months! Mark came up with the design ideas and put them to paper, creating a wonderful French inspired design in two weeks. The permits necessary to install the landscape, hardscape and ironwork, which is all of the design work in this episode, took two months to obtain by the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, the office that approves all building work in D.C. Once Mark’s design plans were approved by the DCRA, things moved right along, and the GardenWise, Inc. crew installed the entire project in four weeks.
Below is the GardenWise, Inc. plan for the Curb Appeal of it all, as well as a before and several after pictures. For more information on this episode, please visit HGTV at http://www.bit.ly/10Lhjr
