Landscape design is a labor of love
Written by: Hilary Daninhirsch
A back yard can be a place of rejuvenation and a thing of beauty, while still serving a function. Upon walking through the welcoming arbor that is at the entrance to Rose and Larry Romboski’s back yard in Cranberry Township, north of Pittsburgh, even the casual visitor can sense that the entire landscape design was well-thought out with care and a love of the natural world. The Romboskis designed the yard as they were building their custom home on the half acre lot; everything in the space has a purpose, and nothing was an afterthought.
