This client’s home is on a very busy intersection in Middleton, WI. While the owner was abroad for over a year, tenants had not taken care of the yard and garden beds and they were both very overgrown. What was once a thriving garden was now overgrown and stressful. Joseph worked with the client to prioritize which beds would be painstakingly restored and which would be weeded, mulched, and maintained. (Note: Some pictures are overexposed, but have been included anyway.)
This urban yard had only a strip of bed next to the fence and the owners had no interest in expanding it. Joseph suggested they clients add color to the limited space by adding a diversity of flowers to the bed. Some gardens have great flowers but get overgrown and it becomes difficult to decipher between unwanted weeds and treasured flowers. This garden had a lot of great plants (such as rose bushes) already growing, but they were getting crowded out by weeds and scrub brush. With a little bit of clean up, plant care education, and a few new additions, Joseph turned this garden into something the owners could enjoy and maintain themselves.
A testimonial from the client:
“Joseph did a GREAT job helping us get our out-of-control yard into shape. We learned so much from him, and all for a very reasonable price. If you’re looking for landscaping guidance or someone to help you plan or clean up a garden, check out www.josephndour.com”

From the client: “Diene helped us get rid of the weeds and grass, thin out our overgrown perennials, and move plants around to give them more space and fill in gaps.”
