Working directly with a team of architects, builders and owners this new home construction takes full advantage of a prominent spot in the neighborhood. Taking cues from the architecture the landscape design employs a new front entry sequence which includes a concrete feature wall, stairs and lighting. The planting palette was developed from the existing and mature Scott’s Pine and Orange Japanese Maple in the front yard. Plants of deep purple, tawny orange and warm gold colors enhance the rich tones of the architectural finishes. Small scale patios on the side yard and on the roof deck are enhanced with dramatic plants, textured stone and colored concrete combinations that when viewed from inside, draw the visitor out into the garden.


An intimate and private entry courtyard greets the owners at their new Mediterranean style home. Duel symmetrical water features using signature urns receive cascades of water into a vessel of stucco, tile and black stones. New plants reflect the architectural grandeur of the home with a flash of Pacific NW Tropical for color and fun. The patio hardscape is constructed of Quartzite and strives to match the house in detail and style. Other elements include low voltage lighting and irrigation to allow the homeowner full ease of use and maintenance year round.


Scented flowers and colorful grasses provide charm to this cottage style garden in Magnolia.  The circle patio on the South side yard provides sunny seclusion while the arbor gives shelter near the potting shed.  A raised deck allows the visitor to take in the whole rear yard in relaxed repose.


This south facing garden received a full makeover following new house construction. A revised entry sequence was constructed to complement the architecture and provides a perfect backdrop for the warm color plant palette. The rear yard has play space with a built in checkerboard hardscape and an elevated grass stage, as well as a home brewing station.


At the South end of Lake Washington this new construction highlights a stone water feature and concrete walls to define the contemporary architecture of the home. A viewing deck and modern plantings greet guests while taking in the views to the lake and the adjacent park.


A full master plan landscaping design was essential for this newly remodeled home in North Beach.  A new entry gate and pathway directs the visitor past an natural boulder waterfall feature and extensive plantings.  The front yard also includes a patio which captures morning sun.  A simple pathway to the rear yard leads to an enclosed area with raised beds for vegetables and flowers.


Owners of a quaint stucco home in Seattle's Phinney Ridge updated the landscape with a tropical garden. On this small site a new porch, pathway, water feature and tropical plants afforded a textural and colorful effect. The parking strip is installed with palm trees and colorful flowers. The bamboo fence and gate were designed and constructed by Bamboo Builders NW.


Overgrown and outdated plantings were replaced with a new stair and entry sequence from the street. A stone patio and arbor capture views of Lake Washington from the master suite. Colorful containers at key focal points highlight site lines to define structure in this new garden.
