This garden renovation project was completed along with a building renovation of the existing brick apartment building in Ballard, Seattle. All mature trees were able to be retained, and a mix of new lower level plants were added to brighten up the part shade garden. Plants with bright foliage were paired with darker evergreen plants to provide nice contrast and interest all year long. A new outdoor terrace for one unit, along with fencing were delicately placed in the existing landscape. The former parking garage was converted into a new unit with a new stair entry and shade garden terrace. Drip irrigation was added throughout to keep the garden investment in top shape during the dry summer months.
