Our work with Marie at Tigerlily started modestly… some revamped gravel and stonework, and a little mulch. Okay, a lot of mulch. A whole truckload one hot August day. A year later we were back to redo the entire back yard. What exists now is a lush paradise for kids to discover the outdoors and a slice of urban nature. Some features we like are the use of juniper (“cedar”) logs for edging and beds, as well as Marie’s wizard poles topped with slag glass. The stump circle – now a thing we almost consider a must for this sort of space – was also a fun addition.
