Adelphi Street Circle Back to projects

Alive Structures removed unhealthy trees, shrubs, and weeds from the garden creating a clean slate and exposing and renovating pre-existing stonework. We created a minimalist inner circle filled with moss, Bleeding Heart, and Solomon’s Seal, that serves as a type of meditation area. In the back border a Flowering Dogwood takes center stage and is surrounded by Clethera shrubs, Mountain Laurels, and woodland perennials such as Foam Flower, and Wild Geranium.

Other landscaping work includes the front garden that provides Adelphi Street with a stunning Witch Hazel show every March.
