Urban Front Yard
The strength of this design is simplicity.Award-winning landscape designer Kim Price turned a bare plot into a dramatic, well-shaded and private space with only three types of plantings. An artful Corten steel frame turns four Flame Amur maple trees into living sculpture and delivers a powerful geometric hit to the front yard. The trees work to create privacy buffer between the yard and a park across the street, as well as reflect some of the sun's heat away from the west-facing property. Towering maidenhair grasses planted along the property line form a far prettier divider than a fence.
