The lawn and garden areas of this home, which borders the Preserve at Riverview, are a combined effort of Karen Meyers and husband Tim Turlington. The garden features dogwood, crape myrtle, and Japanese maple trees, and flower varieties such as hydrangea, verbena, iris, chrysanthemums, day lilies, spiderwort, and coral bells. The diversity of plant choices have created lasting color and visual interest throughout the seasons. Unique edging material made from recycled tires surrounds the front garden beds. The couple removed the top of the back privacy fence in order to enjoy the nature preserve and reused the fence wood in multiple projects throughout their property. A porch sitting area, backyard vignettes, pleasing color pallet, and thoughtful overall landscape design create an inviting cottage effect for visitors and neighbors of this home.
