NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE #15
I have seen this house change over the years. One of the interesting things that changed was the front yard. At first it was a rose garden with a walkway. When the owner wanted to sell they removed the rose garden and put in grass. When the new owners moved in they removed the grass and put in a larger driveway and put concrete everywhere. The next owners took out the large driveway and the concrete and put in a rose garden exactly where the rose garden was years before. So when I sketched the front yard I changed it, too. I moved the rose garden to conceal the driveway and put planters of flowers surrounding the grass area. I figure the lavender would need less water out at the street edge and the flowering plants could be up close to the house.
