Waban Pollinator Garden

“We want to help save the bees!” This client was intent on doing their part by turning their back yard into a pollinator habitat for a new beehive, and relaxing outdoor family activities. Removing the turf grass and deck allowed for meandering crushed granite paths, tumbled bluestone patio, smaller profile deck, structural elements, and a plant palette that feeds the bees throughout the growing season. Thoughtful elevation changes provide visual interest and embrace lushly-planted beds of ornamental and columnar fruit trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, native grasses and annuals, as well as some family-favorite plants that contribute to a bounty of delectable honey.
