Landscape Portfolio Bremerton WA

This very steep hill (27 feet of elevation change) was all grass which presented safety concerns for the older couple who maintained the yard. Regularly visiting grandchildren needed a place to play away from the road. Additional safety measures were needed around deck at the back of the house.

Two tiers of 4 foot high rock walls were placed to create level areas for planting. Instead of lawn, the entire hillside was planted with flowering shrubs that would fill in the space within a few years to eliminate weeding (as well as mowing). A new ramp was added to navigate to the backyard. Plantings around the back deck prevented inadverdant steps off the edge as well as defined the play area for children.
