Annapolis Rose Garden

Posted by E-Landscape on Feb 5, 2012 8:03:22 AM

This winter, the crews at E-Landscape have been busy working on further defining a client's side yard from a turf area into a formal rose garden. The space is accessed from the dining room via french doors and steps that lead down to the garden area. The garden's central axis is framed with Hick's Yews, an upright evergreen shrub which forms a hedge separating the front lawn from the rose garden. A new, interior, circular planting bed will be home to the owner's choice of hybrid tea roses (a long standing passion) and gravel paths will lead guests and gardeners through the space and down steps to the backyard. The path will be defined with steel edging along the perimeter to contain the gravel surface and maintain the perfect arc in the very formal space.
