We completed the installation for a garden in South Seattle a couple weeks ago and we’re ecstatic about the results! (See previous blog entry for the design sketch). The site was challenging in that it was completely covered in gravel, so in order to make space for planting beds, we had to move the gravel, but before doing that we had to remove the sod. You can see what the site looked like in the below Before and After photos:
And below are more pictures of the back yard (I’ll have to post the side yard later!). The water feature is a concrete bowl that my friend Jon Clarren made. It is basically passive water feature/birdbath, but could someday work as a fountain that overflows with water.
Check back for more photos of the shady side yard, another complete transformation!- Erin
