Encore replaced the complete foundation plantings (all four sides of house) that I had let get out of hand. They designed a replacement plan after interviewing us as to our wants and the homeowner association?s restrictions. They were willing to adapt their plans to our desires including having us join them in selecting plants at the nursery. They installed the selected plants and a quarry stone edging around the beds.
Encore recommended details that we would not have thought of. For example, the plastic downspout splash blocks were replaced by “stone riverbeds” that are beautiful. (The riverbeds caught my neighbors eyes and they had a similar effect added to their beds.) We love the results and comments from neighbors have all been positive.
The selection of plants was designed to have some presence year round with a variety of textures and colors through the seasons. We are looking forward to watching the progression through the years.
Rather than discard the plants that were removed, at our request Encore moved many of them to a lightly wooded behind the house where the size was no longer an issue, and my pruning errors will have a chance to grow out. Diane, Jeff, and their crew worked hard doing the installation. They removed all debris as they went along leaving the yard and beds in excellent condition.
