Located in an older neighborhood in Seattle, this landscape was designed in tandem with a remodel of the architecture. The landscape design took its cues from the historic home designed in the Federal Style of architecture which is characterized by strong and symmetrical geometries.
Plantings include two bosques of crepe myrtle and clipped hedges of laurel and yew. Rows of ostrich fern and panels of lily turf and boxwood reinforce the sense of balanced order. West of the house a paved dining court includes a fire pit as well as an overhead retractable shade canopy.
