This Oakville landscaping project was influenced heavily by the large home renovations that took place the previous season. Besides the entire inside "gut", the entire facade of the home was stripped and new natural stone veneer was installed....calling for an upgrade to the front entrance.
The home owner had an extensive collection of perennials and gardens to work around. The new front porch was poured and veneered to match the natural stone on the house. Pavers and steps were installed to add a second walkway to the sidewalk, creating a more open feel, and making the space appear larger.
Small stone garden walls were added to give the gardens some structure for the plants to grow around, also matching the home's new facade. This combined with a new lawn, irrigation system and landscape lighting, gave the finality to over a year of renovations and revival to this suburban Oakville home.
