‘Tis the Season

There’s only 5 days ‘til Christmas, but don’t panic.  If you’re in need of a gift for the garden lover in your life, here’s a thoughtfully curated list of gifts that will delight.

garden show

  1. Tickets to Seattle’s Northwest Flower & Garden Show (pictured above), where landscaping inspiration abounds.
  2. Anything from the The Naked Bee line which you can find at Valley Nursery (our favorite is the Hand & Cuticle Healing Salve).
  3. A subscription to GRAY magazine, THE design magazine for the Pacific Northwest.
  4. Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture by Toby Hemenway.  The book’s central message is that working with nature, and not against her, results in a more beautiful, abundant, and forgiving garden.
  5. A gift certificate for online shopping at Far Reaches Farm, propagators and growers of unusual ornamentals.

Enjoy the gift of giving!

Backyard Patio & Walkway

This backyard patio and walkway project was completed in October.  The patio features a random stone stamped concrete border and an ashlar slate stamped concrete body.  The ashlar slate stamp was also used for the walkway.  We love stamped concrete projects, and if you keep up with us here on our blog, you already know that!

Lawn and an existing exposed aggregate patio were removed.

Poulsbo Farmers Market

The Poulsbo Farmers Market is going strong until December 21st. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday morning or afternoon with the kids, as it teaches them the value of being connected to the food they eat.  Our niece and nephew had a great time eating crepes, listening to Mino Christante play the violin, and shopping for apples, pumpkins and squash.

The vendors are happy to offer up a ton of information about their produce.
