Northwest Garden Style Goes Great in Woodinville
Sublime Garden Design has designed many different landscapes in the Woodinville area and each have a distinct feel. They can range in size from small renovations to complete outdoor living spaces. With each of these Woodinville landscape designs, (as with all of our designs) we worked with the client throughout the entire process and determined what the best use of space would be while taking into consideration their wants and needs, goals, budget, and timeline.
Small Front Yard Water Feature
Starting with a small, blank space can sometimes be just as tricky and complex to design as a large, expansive property because of the need to maximize every inch of the space. This front yard started out with a small patch of grass and a couple of plants so there really wasn’t much curb appeal. This project also included designing a screened in area for their back and side yards.
In the front, all of the grass was removed and a stone bubbler water feature was put in as the main focal point. The existing boxwoods lining the entry way were also removed and replaced with new plants and container plantings. The cedar and maple were then relocated to different areas in the front yard.
Both side yards had an arbor and Parasoleil panel built for screening. The weeds and cobble drainage strip were completely removed and replaced with gravel for ease of use and access.
Moving to the back, the existing patio and deck along with the spa all remained. Parasoleil panels were added in to help screen and create privacy. A garden planting box along with more container plantings were also designed to fit the landscape and help make the space feel more lush and secluded.
After the landscape plan was completed (pictured below on the left), we created a planting plan (below on the right) to blend everything together into a cohesive design that worked with the existing plants and features and added even more visual variety to the landscape with texture and color.
While this space had its own limitations due to its size and other site features, such as slopes, we were able to come up with a creative solution, with input from the client throughout the landscape design process, that is now a space that they can enjoy for years to come.
Moving up in size, we have also worked on several complete backyard makeovers. With this Woodinville residence, we used existing features and hardscaping of the site to tie everything together into the final landscape design.
Before, the backyard was patchy grass with a native vegetation edge. Besides the grass and the existing covered bluestone patio, it was a blank slate. There was a lot of space that wasn’t being used or functioning how the client wanted it to be.
By drawing inspiration from the existing bluestone patio, we designed a new set of bluestone pathways and patio to match and to help direct the flow of the space. On the new patio, a suspended daybed with an overhead covered pergola was designed to create a relaxing space. To help with the existing slope, a block retaining wall was created and stone risers were placed to add access to the new lawn areas. A gravel path was also added for access to the front of the residence.
Being in a woodland setting, the planting plan was designed to fit in with the setting and the existing native vegetation area along the perimeter of the property.
Once the installation of this project was completed, it was an outdoor living space that the whole family could relax and play in.
Full Property Makeover
Recently, we completed installation of a residence in Woodinville that encompassed that entire property. The landscape design ensured that everything flowed together from front to back and all around.
Both the front and backyards were originally planted with grass and a minimal amount of other plants so the landscape was very static. It was important that we designed with the whole family in mind and created useable areas that everyone could take advantage of throughout the year. The property also posed its own challenges with drainage and a grouping of septic lids that needed to be hidden.
This particular landscape design, along with many of our other projects, was installed in phases with the backyard going in first and the front, second. Even though it was installed in phases, the landscape design was fully completed before construction to ensure that everything worked together and that everyone knew what the end result would be. Having a complete landscape design plan, whether you want it done in one or many phases, helps with budget, timeline, and lessens the amount of frustration.
For the backyard, we designed a family friendly space that included a wood deck coming off the existing covered patio that stepped down to a paver patio with a gas fire pit and seat wall in the back. Another seat wall was also designed for the existing covered patio. To address the existing drainage issues, a French drain was designed to function with the existing drain. This French drain also helped create new and interesting areas for plantings and lawn. A raised vegetable planter was incorporated into the landscape design in the side yard with gravel pathways that connect the back to the front, as well. And remember those pesky septic lids? They were screened with plants to help hide them from view but keep them accessible if the need arises.
The front yard was designed with functionality and simplicity in mind. A new lawn line was drawn creating new planting areas that invited the clients and their friends and family to the entrance of their home.
As you can see, there are many different creative solutions for landscape design for all sizes of projects in Woodinville. Your landscape is an extension of your home and a reflection of your personal style, and you should enjoy it to the fullest. We work hard to make sure that we understand your wants and needs, goals, timeline, and budget and turn those wishes and dreams into an outdoor space that you’ll love for years to come. Woodinville landscape designers with horticulture expertise are adept at planning interesting plantings. Sublime Garden Design is always ready to help you get the most out of your garden design.
