We Have A Plan!

It's time to landscape the yard at Doc Holiday cottage and thankfully I have a brother, Bill Griffin, a landscape architect in Savannah, who can help.  He and his crew from Griffin Landscape Design and Contracting did an amazing job at The Coral Cottage and it made a huge difference!  You can see the Before and Afters here.
Recently while I was at Doc Holiday Bill came by to measure the yard and begin working on a plan.  We talked over my wish list...
  •  Plant material that was drought resistant
  •  A privacy hedge on each side of the house to screen us from the park and the next door neighbor--something tall, thick, and fast-growing
  • Oleanders--they are so beachy and have a long-lasting blooming season.
  •  A brick patio
  • Paver walkway to the back door
  •  Bill's suggestion--make a place to hide the trashcans when they are not curbside for pick up.
This is the proposed plan Bill sent me....

The front of the house is facing left.
After looking up a few of the suggested plants to see what they look like and getting some questions answered...
