Many gardens on Mercer Island, near Seattle, have large trees like Douglas Fir and it can be difficult incorporating them into a garden.
In this garden, the trees are now the featured focal point.
Winters around Seattle can be grey and depressing
Paths and colorful plants invite you into the garden
Our clients wanted to spend time on their deck in every season
The garden is a delight even in the dark of winter
Weeds and fir cones and needles were the main feature
The bark path blends perfectly into the woodland setting and the hardy plants provide interest all year
“We are really enjoying our new view out the windows and can hardly wait to see it grow. More importantly, we will be able to enjoy and use the backyard.” -Nancy
