Landscaper in Seattle improves home in Madrona


Arbors, trellises, and fencing create a more inviting entryway for this home in Madrona, WA.

For visitors to this tree lined and shady Madrona home, finding the front door was a challenge. Both visitors and homeowners had to duck beneath two large camellias to access a narrow chain-link gate. Beyond that the front porch was even more understated.

Environmental Construction Landscape Project:

  • We removed the chain-link fencing from the perimeter of the yard. To define boundaries yet create a sense of openness an open layout, a cedar good neighbor fence was built in select areas.
  • To enhance the entry experience, a grand staircase was constructed with sawn bluestone slabs.
  • Centered on the new staircase is a mortared bluestone porch with cedar arbor above to direct visitors' attention to the front door.
  • A rhythm is created through the garden by repeating materials – dimensional bluestone set in an ashlar pattern at the entry walk, while random irregular bluestone flagstone create pathways to other garden rooms.
  • Eyebrow trellises above windows and the garage add architectural interest to the home. They also provide structure for plant vines.
