a WOW project by Ross NW watergardens

I was fortunate to be able to do an interview with Ross NW Watergardens about a project they did and featured on our blog. The project was just awesome, local hardscape and local plants. I'd love to have a spot like this.... someday someday

Here's one of the pics..

A sitting boulder would fit in perfectly on the right side. Nice work though minus the loose edge, I would have used larger stones for a high traffic area

The edge isn't loose, it's all set in mortar on a rat slab. That particular stone is not available in a larger size. With the exception of the edges, the mortar is only recessed about 1/4 inch- so it's very usable. It is actually the only entrance to the house. The walk is about 60 feet long and averages 5 feet wide.

Thanks again Phil!

Always love seeing your pictures, Headz. With a trip to Portland next week, and the possibility of relocating there, I look forward to you handling our landscaping.
