This Washington pool and landscape was really starting to look good this past summer. This landscape is rather new and still maturing and filling in. The pool is surrounded by a 20 acre meadow of grasses and wildflowers. The concept for his pool and landscape was to let the meadow take center stage while still
Being sold as 1 or 2 lots. 1 lot being all the electrical supplies you see on this page. Lot 2 would be the truck body, the lift gate and the air assisted light pole. The truck is not for sale. At this point, I’m not willing to sell any of the electric parts separately.
We are working on a landscape design for a project on Candlewood Lake. The project started as a total tear down of the existing structure with a total outdoor renovation.

It made it through this extra hot spring/early summer as a newly planted plant without a lot of attention or
After 38 years in the landscape industry, 28 years focusing on landscape design and garden installation, there’s not a lot of projects I get really excited about but this is one of those projects. Its not a huge landscape installation project. It’s not even a huge house. It’s quite the opposite. The project consists of
We just completed this landscape design for a residence in Kent. All of the outdoor living space is on the east side of the house. The small entrance patio is used in the afternoons and evening for relaxing. The main goal of this project was to create a more generous patio that would allow seating
I’m always trying to learn, experiment, and grow as a Horticulturist so when it came time to adding some trees to my own wetland, it became more of an experiment than anything else. For a couple of years, I’ve wanted to add some Tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica) trees to my wetland. Instead of just purchasing landscape
One of the first garden tasks I complete every spring is to cut back all the shrubs that flower on new wood. By doing so, I’m not only controlling overall height of the plant but I’m promoting an abundance of flowers. Plants that flower on new wood don’t really care how much they are cut
