We had a lot of fun with this landscape design and installation project in Gig Harbor, particularly because we got to flex a few different muscles in one go. Along with what you see here, we also installed a stamped concrete patio, a meandering pathway, a cedar fence extension, and a front yard landscape. We pride ourselves in being a one-stop shop, and we do it all in-house.
The selected photos below offer a terrific sequence of back yard transformation shots.
Before shot. Not much going on here except for a lot of euonymous. And a slope that was more prominent than this photo captures.
A retaining wall was installed to hold dirt in place, and to create a leveled space for back yard entertaining. The gravel area near the fence gets the most mid-to-late afternoon shade.
Irrigation was installed after all plants were in the ground. We typically do things in the reverse order, however, we wanted to allow for the homeowner to customize his watering schedule according to the water needs of specific beds.
Dark medium bark is so much nicer than medium bark, wouldn’t you agree? We always spread it at least 4” thick to suppress weed growth, contain moisture, and insulate. The gas fire pit was not quite finished at the time this photo was taken, but the flagstone patio surrounding it was.
This view offers a greater perspective of this section of the landscape. The irrigation system is fired off. That grayish-green substance you see on the left is hydroseed.
The benefit of going with a gas fire pit is that it you can have a fire going immediately. There’s no smoke to deal with, and no ash to clean up.
