Landscaping Design & Installation Nashville TN

Landscape Design

This client lives in West Nashville in the Sylvan Park area.  If you’re from Nashville, you know that Sylvan Park is a lot like the Historic East Nashville.  This couple moved to Middle TN for work.  The client wanted a landscape that wasn’t overpowering but worked well with the house.  Our landscape design team went to work.  We wanted to use what was already existing to maximize their landscaping budget.

Adding Accent Planting and a Flagstone Sidewalk

Smart Scapes LLC added accent planting to their front yard landscaping for color and movement staying in scale the front landscape to the home.  In the sideyard, we added a flagstone sidewalk into the landscape beds.  By using the flagstone stepping stones, it was an economical fix for a secondary sidewalk where we didn’t not want to spend the money on a paver sidewalk or have the look of a concrete sidewalk. Smart Scapes LLC used the landscaping blueprint to show the client what their home would look like.

Adding a Paver Driveway (Parking Court)

Our client also wanted additional parking so we specked in a paver parking court.  Again, we wanted to work with what the client had existing, so we worked around the concrete sidewalk that was there.  We chose a paver that looked like the natural stone paver you would find in TN.  The benefit for using these pavers are: concrete pavers installed correctly will be there longer than the house, brick pavers are easy on the eyes, and they can be repaired easily if oil stains appear.  You don’t have to live in Belle Meade, Brentwood, or Franklin TN to have a paver parking lot.

Here you see the new driveway on both sides:

Back Yard Landscape

The back yard was great to landscape.  It was almost a blank slate.  Our client wanted to soften the fence and buildings with landscaping and install a back patio that was accommodating.  Although they had a covered back porch, they wanted the feeling of sitting in a back yard oasis.   We took an approach on the landscape to give them color as well as evergreen landscaping.  We did this with foundation planting, accent planting, perennials, and annuals.  Our client did a great job picking out the paver patio and retaining walls.  Can you see how the segmental walls match up with the concrete pavers?  How the concrete pavers look like cobblestone?  It gives this back yard a relaxing feeling.
