Rice’s Nursery and Landscaping Inc.
Honor

Rice’s Nursery and Landscaping Inc. of North Canton created a landscape to showcase more than 400 varieties of hosta at a Uniontown home. The goal was to create unique ways to display the hosta from different vantage points and provide easy access to the back yard from the driveway. The garden sits on a steep slope along the side of the house, which made it difficult to access the back yard before.

Rice’s Nursery created paver landings and walkways that flow away from the side of the house and draw the eye toward the gardens. Circles and curves within the paving and walls softened the straight lines of the house.
