My clients in the SW Hills of Portland had been frustrated with their muddy front yard since buying their house. They had planted a few things here and there with little success and were looking for some guidance. Their two main priorities were to add color to their yard and keep it low maintenance.

We planted hydrangeas along the front of the house which quickly added structure. The remaining planting beds were designed to have perennials that were blooming at least three seasons of the year intermixed with evergreen shrubs. The steepest slope on the property, once covered in ivy, was planted with Oregon native plants such as salal and wild ginger to help prevent erosion and fill in a space that is not easily assessable with low-maintenance, drought tolerant plants. We added edibles to help engage their pre-school aged son in the garden. The result is a fun, colorful, easy garden that always has something to admire.
