Front yard native garden, permeable paths, new front deck entrance

Front entrance now has curb appeal, and so much more! The newly designed deck is made from recycled milk jugs, manufactured locally. A native plant garden infiltrates run-off from the adjacent driveway while providing wildlife habitat.  The new permeable walkway was constructed from pavers destined for the dump. Downspout moved to rain garden at opposite corner.
