Seattle Landscaper improves home in Bellevue


Courtyard landscaping enhances scenic views in Bellevue, WA

The owners of this Cougar Mountain home near Bellevue, WA love its commanding views of Lake Sammamish, Cascade Mountains, and Mt. Baker in the distance. It was only natural to put the initial efforts on the backyard landscaping focusing on the view. After living in the home for nearly two decades, the couple decided that the same effort should be put towards the front entry of the home.

Environmental Construction Landscape Project:

  • Re-graded and re-routed the driveway
  • Graded site to direct seasonal surface water away from the home with a series of swales. The swales and septic drain fields were planted with native fescues and allowed to grow to meadow height.
  • Planted specimen trees to provide screening and create a sense of mystery to the arrival sequence.
  • Retained a hillside with massive igneous boulders set as outcroppings.
  • Created a courtyard garden in front of the home with large drifts of ornamental grasses to highlight the homes contemporary style.
  • Dimensional bluestones create a slab-style stepping stone walkway to the front door.
