Queen Ann Residence

Seattle, WA

In order to maximize the views and to screen neighboring structures, view study was performed to select the right trees. Sculptural boulders were whimsically, but strategically placed to create a minimal, but interesting backyard.

Steel and rocks are used extensively to match the style of the house.

In the frontyard, under the formidable Japanese Maple trees,  Hypnum imponens (foot-traffic-tolerant moss) was planted to create a serene urban retreat.
