With a 5 year-old son and another baby on the way, our clients in Poulsbo sought a new lawn for the kids to play on, and wanted a landscape they could enjoy for years to come. The existing landscape of their recently constructed home left much to be desired, as you can tell from the photo below.
We directed water away from their site via the dry creek bed (not pictured is the slope that faces the back side of their house), planted mostly drought tolerant plants, and extended their exposed aggregate patio by nearly 500 square feet. Premium topsoil was delivered and spread to prepare for hydroseed.
The dry creek bed connects to their neighbor’s landscape, which we also installed at the same time. To ensure that the young children could access one another’s back yards without damaging the new landscapes, we placed a few “bridges” (flat rocks the length of the dry creek bed) throughout.
More photos coming soon!
