Landscape designer Paul Fontenot, of Garden Design Solutions Incorporated, was given the formitable task of starting from scratch on the landscaping around the Kuppersmith Project house.

His approach on the landscaping plan for the yard included flowering deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs in the front yard that would complement the house without overwhelming it.

A paver patio for outdoor entertaining will fill the space around back between the house and garage. An open lawn for playing will make the rest of the backyard more kid-friendly, with river birch trees and shrubs along the border with the fence.

Separate plans were also drawn for the irrigation system and outdoor lighting. Watch this video to find out more.
