You are not alone if you are one of the people who would rather use the side entrance of their house than their front door.  We were tasked with updating the foundation gardens of this 1990’s house while offering new entry experiences for both guests and the owner.  The owner prefered to enter the house from their side yard so we created a space that offered a semi-private and welcoming experience.  A series of outdoor garden rooms makes this 1/8 acre feel intentional, functional, and inspirational.  A trash enclosure was built into the privacy fence so it feels like a decorative outdoor closet of sorts.  We can’t wait to watch this garden develop its own lovely personality.
