A NEW SIDE ENTRANCE
I began doing small landscaping projects at the start of my highschool education as an exploratory start to my design career, which had progressed over the years substantially into a rewarding and instructional endeavor. The featured project put special focus on a clean, coherent design for a side pathway along my client’s residence. Utilizing grading techniques allowed for addressing runoff and directing water to properly drain without disrupting the pathway’s small stone distribution. By placing a large stone buffer on the side of the pathway, I was able to direct the flow of water away from the path. Providing a retaining wall on the other side of the pathway provided an anchor for the vegetation and embankment. Landscaping timbers within the sloping hill adjacent to the pathway were used to prevent mulch runoff during heavy rains.
