Before & After Garden: A Brazilian Extravaganza #3

before and after driveway garden

This is Clever with a capital ‘C’.   A steep driveway with no space for a front walk is replaced with a much friendlier dual purpose driveway/ staircase.

And the new siding, paint and doors makes the whole thing quite cheery.  I even think that I can find charm in the fact that the outdoor kitchen is at the top of the drive — rather than hidden behind or away from the community area of the street — it really seems very social.  Would you agree?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
