Define Spaces with Evergreens and Walls
Marquette did something many of us don’t have the luxury of doing—he painted his neighbor’s garage and reroofed it to match
his house. The shingled wall you see above serves as a backdrop for his teak bench and collection of potted plants. “It really
pays to have a great relationship with your neighbor,” he says with a smile. If you can’t borrow a wall, plant a hedge. Evergreens
are a key to year-round beauty, structure, and backdrop. ‘Nellie R. Stevens’ hollies surrounding the arbor on two sides separate
it from the driveway and parking area.
The center of the drive is made from welded steel frames filled with soil and then sodded.
