Inspiration for a modern landscaping in Portland.

Austin Residence

Modern Landscape, Portland

This project was designed to compliment the clients simple lifestyle and minimalist taste. The entry courtyard is cool and clean, the sideyard has a wide expanse of lawn surrounded with low maintenance shrubs and trees. The back deck was made for entertaining. Eating and living areas defined by not only furniture but with large planters used as "room" dividers. The rest of the garden is mass planted with groundcover, shrubs and perennials.

    Are the plants deer resistant? Thanks.
