Incorporating Drainage Solutions in a Beautiful Garden Design

A custom garden design that adds beauty and functionality for a Pensacola home.

Controlling water in a landscape is one of the most important factors in maintaining the health and beauty of my custom garden designs.

Just as a properly designed, installed and adjusted irrigation system is crucial to bring enough water into the garden, so is creating pathways for excess water to drain away. For this Pensacola home, I incorporated a French drain and dry creek bed to handle this important task. Walkways of tumbled cobble pavers lead visitors to the residence’s main entrance, as well as to a garden retreat complete with a custom pergola.
