Entrance Courtyard -
This Lawrenceville, New Jersey garden
was completed in the Summer of 2011
and features a new front courtyard.
The courtyard is being created by
removing overgrown plant material and adding a border hedge of Boxwood and Hawthorns that will define the space and give seasons of interest. Sections of lawn within the courtyard will provide a clean manicured look as borders of perennials and layers of shrubs give a variety of color and fragrance.
Tight jointed, dry set flagstone walkways are replacing the mortared walkways which occasionally crack from freezing and thawing. The completed garden with its border hedges will create an enjoyable front yard that is open, yet secluded from the nearby busy road.
