Portfolio – Before and After

Residential

Your yard’s appearance can be immediately improved by adding a raised flower bed or a skillfully-designed mailbox area! Here are a couple of before-and-after examples from recent Alba Landscapes jobs…

We planted new bushes and trees and laid fresh mulch. The trees will continue to grow, creating a layer of privacy from the business behind the home.

Businesses and Therapeutic Spaces

In addition to designing residential landscapes, Jacqui creates healing spaces within the healthcare community. Her work includes:

  • Therapeutic landscapes for Cone Health Cancer Unit
  • Courtyard of the Behavioral Medicine Unit at Alamance Regional Medical Center.

The following photographs show how she created healing landscapes using raised beds and seasonal plantings to improve the quality of the patients’ care and recovery.

Planters and Container Gardens

Jacqui also designs, upon request, planter and container gardens of just about any size. Her miniature “fairy gardens” are especially popular with children!
