Remember the Birds…
A birdbath or stone basin can be a much-needed focal point in a garden that attracts birds year-round. Be sure to site it near a path instead of in a flower bed for easy cleaning and refilling. —Pat Reh, garden designer and general manager, Northwest Botanicals, northwestbotanicals.com

Our client wanted to turn his lack luster back yard into a place to relax and entertain.
This small West Seattle garden was dominated by a big leaf maple and moss and weeds.
With the addition of an outdoor rug and furniture, it will be a pleasant place to sit and entertain friends.
The back yard was just used for storage and to park the car.
Now it is a lush and colorful space.
The featureless back yard was uninviting.
Now the bark path beckons you into the tiny garden.
“Thank you again, Northwest Botanicals. I enjoyed working with you and am very pleased with the results.” – Craig
