Project 2 • Contemporary makeover of a ranch-style home’s landscape
The owner of this Sellwood neighborhood home wanted to remove most turf and use low-maintenance plantings. The side yard would include perennials and edibles in new raised beds. The back yard brought opportunity for bermed areas, a new deck and dry streambed with a beautiful stone pathway leading to a Japanese-inspired sitting pavilion. The owner enjoys watching birds and also wanted plants with year-round interest. Along the street and sidewalk are drought tolerant perennials. J. Walter Landscape & Irrigation provided expert installation service.
