Edible Landscaping

Here is a backyard and stairway overhaul on Vashon Island that included future planting space and a deer-proof fence, allowing the client to gently interact with nature without harm coming to their garden.

These containers will be perfect for an edible garden in the spring.

Before the garden space was gently tamed:

Now our client can look forward to a manageable amount of lawn and less mowing headache in the future, all while enjoying that lovely view!

Plantings and Low-Maintenance Gardens

Sustainable, drought tolerant, and low maintenance gardens are a wonderful way to add to your space without adding a lot of extra work for yourself. If you have a cistern (we install those too!) you can use that in the summer to water your plants. Native plantings are resilient to our climate, and we love incorporating them into garden designs to help support our local species!
