Entry courtyardTraditional Landscape, Seattle

A old watering trough from the site was used as a water feature within the courtyard. Low maintenance plantings and traditional gravel pathways with paver edging flank the stone entry and are surrounded by low lath screen fences to formalize the space. This farmstead is located in the Northwest corner of Washington State. Photo by Ian Gleadle

    Thank you for your kind words. The design is laid out to lead the eye through the garden... Focal points were carefully aligned to Trellis and Gateways to pick up the background and other interesting features such as old silos in the adjacent fields. The garden is designed to lead you through it, creating interesting views and venues that lure to the next area. It is an accent technique that is very old. Mid and far eastern gardens have used this technique for over a thousand years. I applies as well to our region as it did to theirs.

    I suggest that you contact Dan Nelson, Designs Northwest Architects on the Houzz web site under, Seattle, Professionals, Architects. Dan did the architecture for the Smith Farmstead. The floors are dark with granite counters. the Cabinetry is light colored with a copper range hood over the center island. The images of the kitchen are on his web site.

4. A piece of agricultural history. At this farmhouse in Washington’s Skagit Valley, the designers repurposed an old cow water trough from the site to become a pleasing garden feature. The trough is a casual element in a front yard that has a formal axial plan. See the rest of this home
