Our client loved her house and neighborhood in North Eugene, Oregon but its original front yard was a bland postage stamp of scrappy lawn with a handful of boring shrubs. She asked Mosaic to design a landscape that was welcoming to visitors while providing a quiet space for her to relax with her son.
Mosaic began by designing an inviting and ample six-foot wide sandstone path leading through warm colored plantings to a large, planted Vietnamese urn. Creating a private space in such a small, open yard was our biggest challenge. The only potential location was just beyond the neighbor’s front porch. We installed a 6′x9′ rusting metal wall to provide screening without enclosing the garden and let plants do the rest. A sandstone bench is a striking final note to the garden, providing a quiet seating spot for the family to enjoy their garden.
