Laurie and her crew from Cedarmist Gardens have completed phase one of our backyard landscaping project. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and we can't believe how quickly she got the job done, with no hassle whatsoever. But above all, she has great taste and did a fantastic job, really taking matters into her own hands and planning the garden (including not so green things like shed and garbage can placement) as if it were her own.

Before and after of the tranquil spot behind the living room (eventually we'll pave this meandering path with flagstone, and fill in the beds with more plants like Kalmia):
