Landscaper in Seattle improves home in Queen Anne


Curb Appeal of this home in Queen Anne, near Seattle, is greatly improved with landscaping.

A cute English bungalow nestled into the Queen Anne neighborhood was hidden from the street by three overgrown pear trees. They not only secluded the home but at the same time were jeopardizing the existing concrete retaining wall. By partnering with Environmental Construction Inc to create a design for the front yard, we were able to capture the architectural style of the house and complement it with clean lines and desirable plantings that offer a warm welcome to the home. After the enhancement was complete, the homeowner thanked ECI for creating “a landscape that truly makes my house a home”.

Environmental Construction Landscape Project:

  • Created an updated design for the front yard to include new retaining wall, entry steps and walkway, permeable driveway along with plants & low voltage lighting for the finishing touches. The client cherished a custom made metal railing and wanted to ensure it could be re-installed with the updated design. Thus, the final design was created with this in mind.
  • Removed the 3 large pear trees, including the stumps and roots. Transplanted existing rhododendrons and witch hazel and excavated poor soils offsite.
  • Removed a majority of the existing concrete retaining walls and entry steps as well as the existing concrete driveway.
  • Installed terraced Concrete Block Walls and entry steps with concrete paver walkway.
  • Installed permeable driveway.
  • Installed new trees and plantings for seasonal color and year round interest.
  • Added large container plantings at the sidewalk on either side of the steps to balance the entry and ground the design.
  • Installed low voltage lighting to enhance the entry garden at night – up lights for specimen trees and path lights to guide your way to the front door.
