This client came to us because the HOA said he had to do something about the soil in his yard eroding onto the street. Because he had some plumbing done, the yard was completely dug up and there was not much grass left. Additionally, all the plants around the house were old and dated and needed to be replaced. In the end, we came up with a terracing plan that used steel and boulders along with limestone block walls.
We then reduced the height of the walls on either side of the entry stairs to make it more inviting. Lighting was added to the entry for night time use. The plantings around the front entry were arranged to try to give as much symmetry as possible to the asymmetrical house.
