Nature/Nurture Landscape Design is a Portland-based firm that specializes in creating functional, yet distinctive landscapes for private homeowners throughout the greater metro area.

I can help you figure out how to make the best use of your outdoor spaces and guide you in selecting plantings that will suit your needs and complement your personal style.

If you decide you would prefer to do most of the work yourself, or wish to phase in improvements over several years, I will work with you to prioritize next steps and acquire plants on your timeline.

  • Assists you in coalescing your ideas into a well-conceived, workable plan.
  • Works with any budget, large or small.
  • Directs you to the best landscape contractor for your project.
  • Provides a well-planned design for easier maintenance and year-round color and interest.
  • Enables your landscape to stand out among your neighbors!

Winterize Your Fountain Now

If your garden includes a water feature, you should take steps now to protect your investment from upcoming freezing temperatures. The best way is to unplug it and fully drain the basin, then cover it with a tarp or furniture cover. If you have a pump, make sure it is kept dry, either by wrapping in a dry towel or pulling it out for the winter. This is also a good time to thoroughly clean the pump of accumulated debris and algae.
