A garden for all seasonsTraditional Garden, Seattle
The challenge for this garden was the side entrance to the house. We needed to make it clear which way to go and make the journey to the front door interesting and welcoming. This meant there had to be something happening in the garden year round. Foliage plays a big role in this garden!
The pathways were designed to provide a gracious entrance and be wide enough in some spaces to allow for neighbors to gather outside the home office balcony.
The backyard needed to accommodate the trampoline, food gardening, outdoor dining and entertaining. Who knew a trampoline could function as a room divider?! The raised beds are at a comfortable height and depth for easy tending and keeping pets out. The result is the whole family can share the yard yet every function has a zone of it's own. And, you always know what season it is!
