Focused on edible plant production, the gardens on this Seattle property feature dwarf fruit trees, a raised vegetable garden, small lawn, entry patio and extensive plantings; all enclosed with a fence designed to balance privacy with circulation and aesthetics. The owners built a chicken coop in the back to balance out their diet and their urban farm!
From the entry walk to the backyard patio, this Madison Park property has been transformed into a lush landscape woven together by plants, stone, water and wood. With a recirculating water feature providing the patio ambient sound, the backyard sanctuary is the perfect setting for an outdoor dinner party or simply a peaceful place to read a book.
A backyard spa with a view of the Olympics, this unique project included the design and construction of an outdoor shower, sauna with a green roof, and hot tub area for relaxation and restoration. Highlighting the patina of recycled materials, this outdoor oasis is a restorative refuge from the sometimes dreary Seattle days.
With two young children and an active lifestyle, the landscape design for this family provides a diverse progression of spaces including a shade garden, veggie garden and patio on a challenging site. We enclosed an exposed garage roof deck with raised planters and trellises and retained a once-sloping back yard with a discreet wall. An elegantly matched fence, arbor and gates were then added to provide safety and sanctuary.
From garden show creations to adventures with Suzy (our dump truck), we like to keep our creative energies flowing in many directions and have a lot of fun in the process!
