While Bruss Landscaping is typically brought in at the beginning of a project, in this case an extensive and beautiful hardscape was already in place. We were given the delightful task of adding plantings to soften the hardscape and bring elements of the woodland setting into the outdoor living spaces.

Newcomber Renovation

Newcomber Renovation - After
I met this client at a local newcomer’s club town meeting where I was asked to speak. They had recently moved into a newer house in Glen Ellyn. The current house fit their inside needs but not too many of their outside needs. The largest issue was no direct access from the house to the backyard. Not an ideal way of enjoying the beautiful wooded backyard.
