Tranquil landscape design redo

Written by: Hilary Daninhirsch

The back yard of Jennifer Shelhouse’s townhome was in dire need of a redo. It was cramped, linear and not particularly user-friendly. The “before” back yard, with its wood decking, was very dated and required a lot of maintenance. Walking out the back door to the yard felt like walking into a narrow hallway. Plus, there was a hill that went up about 4-5 feet. “It was multi-tiered and didn’t work or flow well and wasn’t very usable,” says Jennifer.  Adding to that was an air conditioning unit located on the back patio, which was loud and took up space.
