Capture the power of nature to live well, live long, live happy!
Is your outdoor space ready to nurture you for a lifetime?
Live well, live happy with our one-of-a-kind residential landscape design focused on YOU as an older adult.
Second Summer specializes in offering landscape architecture services for Baby Boomers. Many of us (and I count myself as a Boomer) are in a period of transition – moving from hands-on parenting to empty nesting or caretaking elderly parents, while our work lives are focused on moving towards retirement.
Hi, I’m Ann Yakimovicz, and I’ve created a unique approach to designing – or re-designing - a yard or outdoor space that changes with you and will provide safety and pleasure for years to come. My designs, called Elderyarding®, encompass creative landscape architecture with the latest research on how outdoor spaces support mental and physical health in aging and promote independence. Each design is built on a foundation of exercises that identify how you sense the natural world.
A one-of-a-kind, personalized plan for your yard or garden that meets your needs for social connection – or solitude. A thoughtfully designed yard for active gardening – or a place to simply sit. A healing garden – or a safe place to entertain grandchildren!
Age-friendly design that matures with you
Second Summer offers landscape architecture services in Texas and design consulting services everywhere else, available on-site, via phone, email, and Skype.
