Contemporary Lakeside Courtyard

Settled beside Lake Washington on the Bellevue waterfront, this property was transformed into a contemporary waterfront garden that served both utilitarian and aesthetic purposes. Catching storm water runoff that drains into Lake Washington year-round, the garden slows down the water flow through vegetative filtration, and collects the water into a beautiful and naturalistic pool. A sitting deck beside the pool offers a pause on the way to the boat dock on the Lake. Large granite cobbles are set vertically to retain grades and tuck the patio into the hillside.

The garden features a blend of very strong grid of plantings close to the home and more naturalistic plantings closer to the lake. The plant palette creates a bold statement with the blue fescue grid and bright sedum 'ogon' groundcover. Finally, an antique Indian oil lamp is incorporated into the landscape as a cultural artifact and focal point within the center of the garden.
