Consultation, Design and Install
In this video, designer Mike Morrison walks us through a landscape renovation he designed for an urban lot, replacing lawn and shrubs with native plantings that include a raingarden, winding rock wall and salt-tolerant plants in a boulevard garden.
Projects like this start with a consultation. Metro Blooms is currently scheduling fall consultations. We can follow up with a design over the winter, and schedule your installation next spring.
