When I saw the photo of this barren, construction ridden side yard, I knew the remodel was going to be fantastic. It seemed to be the perfect length for a new path, brought to life by ornamental trees and a leafy perennials. I clicked the photo and was linked to the website of a landscape company out of Homer Glen, IL called A Touch of Green. I was thrilled to see that the project turned out to be exactly what I had hoped it would.
Transformed by a winding path and a variety of trees and perennials, this new sideyard is the perfect tunnel to a backyard oasis. I really like that they chose to go with a curved path to offset all the straight lines on the house, and the beautiful wooden arbor really seems to pull it all together. This is the kind of yard I would love to have on the most used side of my own house, but unfortunately I have to be able to get a trailer through the area so I am left with a wide, arbor-free patch of what I guess I will call grass. But, after seeing a sideyard this lovely, I might just have to go to the other side of the house and try for something similar, even if it’s hardly ever walked through. –erin
