I believe that a well-designed garden should have year-round appeal, and also that it should integrate into the local environment through a careful selection of plantings and features. I like to use a balance of native and ornamental plantings in my designs, so they are beautiful to our eyes but also attractive to birds, butterflies, and other pollinators without attracting unwanted visitors.

Below are some excellent sites that discuss sustainable landscaping and green living techniques. Visionscapes NW is very committed to these concepts and I strive to make all of my  design projects beautiful and functional while creating the smallest possible footprint on the land.
