Do you ever get tired of looking at the same old patch of grass? Our client in Columbia City certainly did.
In order to fix up this sloping patch of yard and turn it into a wonderful garden space, we started by installing a graded tiered pathway. This tiered approach helped provide a level area on the top for the flagstone patio, and an additional pathway which runs the perimeter of the space.
The water from the roof is now being captured by a cistern which is connected to the side sewer, while also outflowing through a raingarden along the side of the property. This keeps rainwater from overflowing into Lake Washington and the Puget Sound during the wet months, and will provide a great way for the owner to water her new landscape during the summertime.
Soon we will be installing a lovely variety of native and edible plant varieties including echinacea, sage, lupine, rosemary, lavender, red flowering currant, nodding onion, bunchberry, and many more! Stay tuned as we continue our work on this project. More photos to come!
