Pics of a grand ole estate we maintain. We did some major landscape renovation in 1999, but the house has changed owners twice and every one is happy with the status quo, I doubt it will ever get finished. Guys mowed with the Q36 today, the 44" belt is out of commission, waiting to demo a Wright 48"...Enjoy the pics!

Man, that place is beautiful!!! Ya'll are doing a great job. I love the way the P. tricuspidata envelops the house. Do you ever trim it away from the windows. Way down south where I live, I always keep it off the wood around windows because it seems to lead to rot. Just wondering what it's like up there. Only real fault I can find with that place is that I don't get to work there. Enjoyed seeing it!

The windows on this house are encased in metal so rot is not a problem. We do trim the Boston Ivy back every 2-3yrs (its been 3!), we take it 8 inches away from the windows and remove it from the balustrade that is atop of the house, looks real sharp when its done!

Glad you enjoyed the pics.

BTW we rent a Z-boom lift to trim it.

Jameson, is that property in Edmonds? I've done some irrigation work in a old estate very similiar to that one in Port Townsend. I love old places like that.

BTW, tell your guy to cut/wash his hair :)

Nah, 90% of our clients are elderly, and I think someone with dreads might frighten them.

One thing about the state of Washington the climate allows for beautiful healthy growth of a wide variety of plants and trees.
I would probably spend all my time there if I maintained it..just because I would want to be in such a beautifull setting.Wonderful place and a great garden.You can tell it is an old garden. Only in old gardens do you get that kind of beauty and feel.
Thanks SO much for sharing those pics with us !
Fantastic place.

Thanks Surf. I would also like to see more pics of the gardens members maintain, I bet there are some real gems out there. I'll post some more pics in the future of other gardens.

Fantastic place.

Thanks She, we are really blessed up here, thats for sure. We made quite a few substantial changes to the garden back in 1999, so I appreciate the compliment of the 'feeling' of the garden even more.
