A simple rendering from a long ago design. I decided something a little lighter than my last post is needed today, so here we are.
I have decided to share this rendering for a planting area along a walkway and up against a 10′ high modular block wall. The planting also had to do double duty, in the sense that we were looking for a way to hide the “underneath” of the staircase.
Did it work?
Here’s a after picture taken some months later of the same site.
[ Not quite the same angle but you see the concept.]
Here’s another angle across the backyard.
[ The steps are just off to the right. ]
Was this conceptual perfect? No . . . of course not, the idea of the conceptual is to get the juices flowing, create some excitement between the homeowner, their site and the Designer’s idea’s.
Addendum: When these pictures were taken no one had been living in the house for over 5 month’s. The owner’s had built there dream home only to move away because the dream job offer came along. At last account the house had been empty for over a year.
The large Thujas really help – Where’d you get em? Doggone these clients who don’t follow thru with a project. The nerve of moving
Your sketches are really amazing. I especially like how you rended those conifers.
Your design and execution is beautiful. The real estate market here is also in the pits. One house has probably been on the market for 2 years in a spec development that’s filling up (but I bet I know why). Oh, I wish I had the eye and vision that you do! What you could do with my beautiful, overgrown acre in Tennessee!
