Selecting your garden style for success in seattle’s climate
There are several styles of landscape and garden design. People may prefer one style over the other for a variety of reasons. Some may prefer the formal and structured design of a French garden, while others may prefer the more natural and relaxed style of an English garden. Personal preference, location, and the overall design of the surrounding property may all be factors in choosing between styles.
A French garden is a type of formal garden that originated in the 16th century in France. It is characterized by its geometric layout, symmetrical design, and use of formal plantings such as topiaries, parterres, and knot gardens. French gardens often include statuary, fountains, and other ornamental elements.
An English Garden is a type of informal garden that originated in the 18th century in England. It is characterized by its naturalistic style, with winding paths, informal plantings, and a mix of flowers, shrubs, and trees. English gardens often include elements such as lawns, ponds, and rustic ornaments.
From Our Clients
“This has been my favorite home improvement project. This company literally made me a yard where there previously was overgrowth, concrete, large stumps and rocks. They were able to complete the project on time and their cost was much more reasonable than others I interviewed. The project lead Fernando was hard working and communicative. The owner David (and Jeff previously) as well as the GM Chris all stayed in touch throughout the project. I would definitely use them for other projects in the future”
“The team put in an irrigation system in our front and back yard, cleaned everything up and added many new plants to the sunny and shady areas around our home. The owner was very personable, explained everything well and did exactly what he said he was going to do. He was fantastic to work with. His team was wonderful, super hard workers, and very friendly. They helped create color and beauty in every nook and cranny of our yard. My husband and I are very thankful we used this company.”
“Happy with my choice. I had a very small townhouse backyard that was a bit of a mess (low quality builder-grade plantings) and had somewhat of an idea what to do with it. They provided good advice and the final result turned out very well. Finished ahead of schedule too! One year later and I'm still happy with the result. I definitely won't forget the attention and responsiveness of this company. Thanks a bunch! ”
