As a homeowner, undertaking a landscaping project similar to the one I’m about to discuss, it can be a bit of a conundrum. Two obvious questions immediately come to mind. The first question is, do we scrap everything and start over. The second one is, can we work with what we have and repair/restore. Is a redesign in order in order to fix something that is not working so well? Decisions, decisions. Obviously going with one of these options will have financial and time implications. Some of the determining factors could be, let’s start with the big one. Money, how much of an investment makes sense for this project. Starting over will certainly cost more money. How about time, are there any pressing deadlines that need to be met. What about the materials? Are the existing materials even worth saving. Are they chipped, broken, discoloured and/or heavily deteriorated through weathering. If they’re not salvageable than the decision is simple, scrap everything and start over! That was not the case with this project. The materials were in great shape, beautiful aged Wiarton stone, with many over size pieces. It would have been a crime to have disposed of everything, this was some nice stone. This front landscaping project was crying for restoration.
