A Naturalistic Hardscape Design Inspired by the Pacific Northwest

An authentic PNW landscape design that combines naturalistic hardscape design (basalt, river rock), with a planting style that takes inspiration from Willamette Valley ecology. This grassland plant community consists of native perennials, grasses, and bulbs punctuated by three clumping Vine Maples in a woodland edge setting. The homeowners, transplants from the Southwest, now feel firmly planted in the Pacific Northwest.
