The goal of this remodel project was to create a lower maintenance
landscape by removing the existing lawn and replacing it with native,
low water grasses and perennials. Water and chemical usage are greatly
reduced with the new landscape, along with maintenance time spent mowing
the previous lawn. Now an occasional sweep for weeds is all that is
The front yard was re-graded to create an upper “terrace” with a stepping stone pathway. Mossy boulders were installed along the slope.
narrow concrete pathway leading to the front door was removed and
replaced with wider paver steps, creating a beautiful, durable, and more
inviting front entry. Pavers stand up well in the Central Oregon
environment and are easily repaired without needing replacement.
The backyard was also remodeled to be lower maintenance including installation of pea gravel mulch, boulders, and new shrubs and trees.
