A Rossiter House in Washington Gets an Appropriate Front Entrance

Above is a before picture of Stonegate, an Eric Rossiter house in Washington. We were hired to upgrade the tired landscape. The first thing we did was free the granite stone chimney and siding from English Ivy. We then transplanted and/or removed all of the existing boxwood that were haphazardly planted without a consideration to the structure. Once that was completed, the plan was to renovate the front foundation plantings and create a dog run that was tied to an exterior door. Along the way, I suggested that we should create a more appropriate front entry experience. I love how it has come together so far. We are currently planting the front of the dog run to create some privacy from the road.

Granite stepping stones now lead the way to the family’s main entrance into the kitchen.
A new front entrance in Washington that includes new landscaping and granite walkway.
