Shade Garden Design and Build
Landscaping Services in Bergen County
Who says shade gardening can’t be interesting? This HoHoKus residence located in northern New Jersey was just that. The front of this house had sporadic patches of ground covers which weren’t very attractive and numerous areas of bare ground. As in any design all plants were laid out first to determine the correct spacing to make sure their growth habits would not interfere with each other. The views are very important and must be seen from various angles in order to see that all areas are complete.
Many shade and deer resistant plants have been selected so that this install flourishes with time. Some of the material’s selected were, Ilex Steeds, Variegated and other species of boxwoods, leucothoe, and vinca, a great ground cover for dense shade gardening.
The soil was amended with composted organic matter and fertilizers providing an excellent growing medium in which the plants could flourish and grow. Providing the necessary nutrients from the get go is very important within any planting project.
