We headed all the way out to Steilacoom for this project.  The homeowners were such a pleasure to work for that we didn’t at all mind the extra commute!  An added bonus was getting the opportunity to learn about and work with different vendors in that area.

The talented Emily Russell ASLA designed this lawnless landscape, creating an additional parking area along with pathways for the homeowners to easily move through their front yard space.  Her plan originally called for pavers, but with concrete being a much less costly alternative, the homeowners opted for London Cobblestone stamped concrete instead.

Take a look at the progression of this lawn free landscaping project:

Existing grass and an exposed aggregate concrete walkway and step were removed.


Topsoil and decorative rocks were installed for the creation of landscape beds, bordered with forms for concrete installation.


Plantings included Miscanthus ‘Morning Light,’ Mexican Feather Grass, Mondo Grass and more…

stamped concrete

Integral coloring was used for this concrete installation which was done in two separate pours.
