When the residents at Fortview first moved in, they sought after something different than the full bermuda grass their new house came with. They came to us wanting more of a grassy, beach-like feel with some slight cover from the street. We put in a colorful array of flowering shrubs, mexican feather grass, succulents and other drought tolerant plants. A large L-shaped planted was made for them to extend off the patio, creating more space and some privacy from the road. On the inside of the planter benches were added for more seating, and walkway connected the bench to the original front porch.
