This side yard on Gables Drive in Old East Rome was once home to an invasive
Bradford Pear tree and a Chaste tree.
The homeowners wanted a new look AND a new purpose for the space - a pollinator garden. Using native plants was also
important to them. With the help of Plant Life Nursery and Landscape Design in Coosa, they chose shrubs that are sure
to attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators. Those include Lantana, Scarlett Sage, Prairie and Purple Coneflower, Red Star
Hibiscus,Sunflowers Black & Blue Salvia, and a variety of sunflowers. This will soon be a very colorful and environmentally friendly space.
This was the view of a backyard in the Twickenham subdivision. There was a lot of open space with
a small building at the rear of the yard. The homeowners decided they wanted to make use of the
space in a way the entire family could enjoy and chose a 24’ above-ground pool. They built a deck
around the pool which features a wide, welcoming staircase.
Even with the new
pool and deck
there was still
plenty of space for
a firepit area. The
pea gravel and
pavers for a warm
and rustic look.
They mirrored a
back privacy “wall”
from the deck and
now enjoy family
gatherings in the
