Normandy Park Sanctuary
To satisfy the clients’ desire for a beautiful yet highly water-efficient and low-maintenance landscape we relied heavily on the use of native and drought-tolerant plants to create a garden where Pacific Northwest lush meets Zen simplicity. We retained existing mature trees and large floribunda roses, took advantage of existing ivy and unsightly cyclone fencing to create a green ‘hedge’ fence, and removed the expanse of lawn. In its place we established a soft ground plane of compacted fine gravel and fertile mulch to contrast lush swathes of vegetation. The effect is open, verdant, and calm. Blocks of contrasting foliar color, large Brown Mountain Basalt stone and earth-toned pots are employed in a variety of ways to provide structure and focal points in the landscape.
