Contemporary Cottage

Burlingame

When we arrived at this property, the first thing we noticed was the brick pathway leading to the front door was totally uneven and broken by the roots of a nearby tree. Naturally, addressing this was the first priority of the homeowners. Along with a low-maintenance and drought-tolerant planting, we took special care to make sure the new pathway would not succumb to the same fate as the first by altering the route and installing a root barrier. The finished product features a soothing palette of cool colors to match the existing blue of the house and new walkway. We added fun pops of contrasting pinks and a wide variety of evergreen texture for year-round interest. Path lights highlight the new walkway and a row of stones along the sidewalk echo the home's style while providing a buffer between the garden and neighborhood dogs.
