Our clients moved into a new home near Mount Si in North Bend and wanted to put their own touch on the landscape. We started by removing all of the existing plants in the backyard (which included many old stumps). We kept some of the plants in the front yard landscape but for the most part, they resulted in a whole new plant scheme. We installed ten zones of irrigation to provide adequate water to the property. All of the existing turf was removed and hydroseed was applied. With such a big property to work with, we tried to keep the planting fairly minimal, to allow our clients the option of expanding the plant scheme over the years. The centerpiece plants are five large ornamental Japanese maples in the front and backyard. Various perennials were planted throughout, to add great color in the summer and the ability to divide and fill in other planting areas as they get bigger. An added bonus was a large dry river bed in the back native area that was created using all of the cobble excavated during the installation of the irrigation system. A full lighting system was installed for the front and backyard trees as well as path lights for the front entry. The old back patio and front walkway were removed and new stamped concrete was installed. To finish the project over 3500 sqft. of turf area was hydro-seeded. By spring we should have some great updated photos of the lawn and plants.
