Landcare, Landscaping, Water Effects, Pavers and Fences
Northwest Flower & Garden Show 2015 :
We just completed our first show garden with great success! We took a chance with a theme that hadn't been done before: "The Romance of Steampunk"! We won the silver medal and the People's Choice Award. This was popular for it's unique theme with lots of whimsy and fun! Many thanks to my amazing crew and different artists who contributed to our success.
The Romance of Steampunk
A few of the Steampunk elements:
Folly structure: this is custom made from many salvage elements such as old washing machine windows, old cedar fencing and parts of a pergola, and hand-cut shingles, for a unique look.
Steampunk clock: a 4' tabletop clock face with layers of mixed gears and copper tubing, framed with two very old estate columns.
Kinetic water feature was custom built for us by Waterworks Garden Sculpture by Douglas Walker.
Patio is made with a 4' 800lb gear as the center piece and surrounded with tumbled flagstone. Mill stones act as a pathway.
Boulder wall is a mix of boulder types, plus insets of metal gears and terracotta drain pipe for whimsical interest.
Unique pots by AW Pottery, including an over-sized teapot inset into the edge of the water feature.
Home and Garden Art in Ballard provided the wonderful peacock, table set, and the 3-ring kinetic sculpture, plus many other wonderful pieces.
