Edible Landscapes

Why not have a beautiful garden and eat it too? Edible landscapes include fruit trees, berry bushes, vines, herbs, and perennial flowers. Plants are arranged using good design principles and maintained with specialized pruning techniques to ensure that the plants are both wildly abundant while also pleasing to the eye.

Native Pollinator Gardens

Declining biodiversity, especially loss of bees has been getting a lot of attention lately. You can address this crisis in your own yard or even parking strip by converting lawn to a diverse palette of native grasses and flowering perennials. I use plants with interesting textures and seed pods to ensure year-round interest.

Raised Bed Vegetable Gardens

If you want to grow annual veggies like salad greens, beans, beets, pumpkins, garlic and onions, raised beds are the way to go. We’ll find the best spot in your yard for placement, choose a material that fits your design palette and budget, and fill it with Instagram worthy crops and flowers.

Rain Gardens

A typical home’s roof is around 1,500 square feet, shedding over 38,000 gallons of stormwater a year! Often, this water causes erosion, collects near the base of the house, or is redirected, toward your neighbor’s house or into the street where it picks up oil and other pollutants before ending up in Puget Sound. Not great for salmon, shellfish, or swimmers. A much better option is to direct roof runoff to a rain garden, a small area of your yard designed with special soil and plants to infiltrate the water. Beautiful native perennials and even some edible fruits can be used to make the rain garden blend-in with the rest of the garden.

Caretaking and Coaching

Nervous about keeping plants alive? Caretaking and coaching packages are available for existing clients ranging from seasonal coaching visits covering pruning, irrigation, and harvest to regular caretaking visits during the growing season.

"Don't make something unless it is both necessary and useful; but if it is both necessary and useful, don't hesitate to make it beautiful."    Shaker motto.
