April Yard of the Month
April 1 @ 8:00 am - April 30 @ 11:30 pm
2330 CLUB ROAD
Originally the yard of Theresa Nardi’s hideaway on 2330 Club Road was a blank slate of dying fescue grass and overgrown river birch and cryptomeria with the rear yard a baked red clay slope.
Stepped open decks were added and deck railings removed. Gravel areas, evocative of water were created and a fountain added. Existing bamboo was kept at the fence and a less invasive bamboo was planted. A dry stone creek bed was laid down for aesthetic and runoff purposes with Japanese maples being the focus. In shade areas ferns, yews, hydrangeas and pieris are planted and an azalea garden pays tribute to the Carolina location.
The massive double-gated custom fence with shingled eaves and bamboo insets completes the Asian inspired landscape.
Gravel pathways with floating stones connect front and rear yards. Giant boulders add visual interest and horizontal stone steps address the incline. The main yard was given over to drought tolerant grasses, sedges, pines, mahonia, dwarf cryptomeria, black mondo grass and junipers. Azaleas, Siberian Iris, day lilies, spirea and butterfly bushes add seasonal color.
