Garden of Pattern and Light First Place AIA-SWO People’s Choice Award, Residential Landscape Design

Fir trees tower and statues stand guard over this well-balanced garden.  The center circle design was conceived with an aerial perspective in mind.  The owners of this garden enjoy the simple plan and clean lines of the design from the deck above.  Light and shadow play on the plants, walks, and trellis, while soothing water sounds trickle throughout the garden.

Asian influences abound in the strong paving patterns, trellis forms, bold tropical plants, and Chinese figures.

The rustic look of the retaining wall coupled with a northwest style plant palette, bring a local feel as well.  East meets West in a multi-faceted garden, resulting in serenity and peace kept by the guards.
