Historic Downtown No Mow Oasis

In keeping with the historic nature of the home located in downtown Frankfort, drystacked limestone walls and brick were used for the porch, sitting wall, and a two level patio. Clay bricks line the soft pea gravel path and stepping stones were placed for maintenance and general purpose accessibility throughout the garden. The patio, sitting wall, and recessed limestone firepit provide a lovely entertaining space for friends and family, while the porch with two chairs is a nice place for the couple to sit and have their morning coffee. With drainage issues from a gutter and sump pump under the house, the series of two rain gardens help to dissipate the water into the ground water supply. Frankfort, KY Summer 2011
