Natural Screening -
This garden features a new driveway
and plantings created to screen the
house from roads on 2 sides of the

Native plants were selected to blend with the surrounding environment with a focus on species to give color and interest while providing the necessary screening. The purple berries of American Beautyberry and yellow flowers of Goldenrod create a colorful combination. Goldenrod joins the red berries on Winterberry Holly to create a colorful Autumn combination. Eastern Red Cedars provide evergreen screening and structure to the garden. In Winter the upright dark green silhouette of the Cedars is made even more sculptural by the lower billowy grasses and their light tan colors. The new drive was designed to flow through these plantings to create a feeling of entering the property while not offering direct views to the road.
