It is exciting to see one of our past clients, Eileen DesChapelles, launch her own interior design business. ED INTERIOR DESIGN.
A few years back RKGD designed two simple but inviting exterior spaces for her home. The property suffered from a variety of overgrown trees that were messy and creating far too much shade. Once we cleared away the problematic trees we were able to regrade the rear of the property, add a simple retaining wall and create a level area for seating and dining. The new sunlight afforded us a lush lawn for ball throwing and a mature row of flowering pears created the desired privacy from the school yard across the street. The new trees also deliver a fantastic spring show when in bloom and offer winter fruit for the many birds attracted to Eileen's property. Out front we capitalized on the late afternoon sun by creating a conversation seating area with layered hedges for privacy. Continuous bloom perennial beds offer a flowering interest, as well as, a warm welcome as one arrives at the front door.
