This Saturday, June 15th, TLC Garden’s Red Renaissance project was featured in the Garden Bloggers Fling of 2019. The Garden Tour, hosted by Botanical Interests, brought many visitors to the site where they explored the project elements and features that made this project a masterpiece. Red Renaissance, designed and built by TLC Garden’s Owner and Lead Designer Cheri Stringer, won a Silver Award in the International Landscape Design Awards of 2016. It was a multi-phase project, designed and built with the intention of attracting pollinators and migrating birds and creating a better sense of arrival while preserving the beautiful mountain views. The Garden Tour attendees were especially excited about the custom seating and water feature near the front entryway, and they loved the bold-colored, seasonal plant palette throughout the site.
The Red Renaissance project presented a unifying theme once finished. Each phase of the project was integrated into the previous phases. A breezeway was built between the house and the detached garage during Phase 3, connecting pathways from the previous phases, and a grass drive was installed into the natural slope of the site for aesthetic and functional purposes. A new drainage system allowed for any accumulated water in the breezeway to run into a swale along the side of the garage. A boardwalk was added between the entrance deck and preexisting deck, continuing the theme of connection. Thus far, a total of five phases have been implemented, and a sixth phase is planned for the near future.
