As the flagstone was being set from the last project (Grass Removal Business), Dusty was busy prepping and planting out the raingarden. The pallet for this design was mostly native plants and pollinators, which we received from our friends at Go Natives! Northwest Native Plant Nursery. We also included several birch trees for shade while creating a bit more privacy in this large corner lot.
This was a lovely project. We built an arbor to ferry the water into the double raingarden, which runs the length of the house in a dry creek bed style. We included a winding bark pathway that curves around the front of the house, and gives a nice complementary texture. There will eventually be a small circle of grass (to please the dog) which is seeded out and on the grow.
The place looks great, and I am excited to be able to watch it flourish and develop. Nothing beats working in my own neighborhood, as I can watch all of my little raingarden landscapes grow and change over the years.
