West Chester Historic Property Landscaping and Hardscaping

This Historic West Chester Property looks great day and night! The new flagstone walkway, designed beds, and landscaping make the property feel complete:

 

These raised beds were designed to be as close to the kitchen as possible without overtaking the outdoor dining area. They only need freshly grown vegetables and herbs to be made complete!

This wood screening is beautiful and will keep the back patio feeling private.

 

These trees are espalier fruit trees and are the perfect way to screen the street side of this yard. What is an espalier fruit tree you are asking yourself?
Espalier fruit tree definition:
    es·pal·ier
    noun
    1. a fruit tree or ornamental shrub whose branches are trained to grow flat against a wall, supported on a lattice or a framework of stakes.
    verb
    1. train (a tree or shrub) to grow flat against a wall.
So in this case, these are pear and apple trees that are being trained to screen this fence line. They will only look better and better as they continue to train against these wires and posts!

 

 

 

 

The flagstone walkway now connects the front, side, and back doors making every part of the yard easily accessible from the house.

 

At night the lighting makes this property come alive again!
