Landscaping and John Street Reno Update

It is finally feeling like spring has sprung! I took a trip over to the property that my parents are cleaning up/building a house/renovating cottages on and they have done a ton of work clearing out old trees and   the property looks amazing and huge! With the sunlight and the fact that the snow has finally melted and you can see the ground, it is all starting to seem real. Pictures below:

 The wires will all be buried and there will be planting along the fence along with grass planted everywhere. The shutters are going to be put on the cottage soon.

 A bunch of dead trees were knocked down hence the big pile of wood chips. It's been very rainy in Greenwich so there is a lot of mud but from the old 100 year old stone wall to the new house will be a huge front yard.

 This is from where the old tennis court was looking back. The new house will be built here.

The adorable cottage! Interior pics coming soon! There is also a gate house that is being completely gutted and I will have pictures of that along with the 6 car garage/barn that will be converted to a "party barn." Next step is talking to an architect for the house. 

My mom is starting to think about planting and building the house now and we've been pinning to our secret John St. pin board amazing ideas. Check out some of our favorite landscaping and planting.
