The water ripples and the sweet smell of summer is in the air. A brook flows into a woodland lakefront retreat with flowering rhododendrons, towering lilacs and azaleas in bloom; the treasured memories of a summer long ago. Enjoy an evening sunset in a sheltered outdoor dining area and a fire pit, with natural stone seating, numerous perennials and flowering bulbs. Think back – Where were where you the summer of  ’77?

Serenity In The City http://issaquahlandscaping.com/2017/02/22/serenity-in-the-city/ Wed, 22 Feb 2017 06:41:31 +0000 http://issaquahlandscaping.com/?p=311 This is your retreat, a place of relaxation either after a long day of work or on a lazy Sunday. The doorway welcomes you to a place where you can enjoy open air, quiet sounds and a wondrous array of plantings. Granite slab steps lead through the sculptured iron gate. A path of natural stone continues past a glass sculpture water feature, where the soothing sound diminishes unwanted city noise. A three-level patio provides choices for relaxation: the first, an arbor swing to enjoy with a friend; the second, a cozy spot to sit alone with a good book; the third, a place to putter around with the container gardens.

Rhythm & Roots – A Tribute To Bluegrass http://issaquahlandscaping.com/2017/02/22/rhythm-roots-a-tribute-to-bluegrass/ Wed, 22 Feb 2017 06:39:58 +0000 http://issaquahlandscaping.com/?p=307 Sounds from the mountains where it was born, translate to the many souls who enjoy the rhythm and roots that define Bluegrass music. Imagine gathering on an afternoon to join in on the merging of sound and bring the songs of the everyday experience to life. A combination of instruments is waiting for their musicians to begin to play. The rustic shelter reminds us of the importance of using the things from the past to live our lives today. An iron structure brings beauty with strength. The area is surrounded by native plantings, and accented with herb and flower gardens.

Disco Fever http://issaquahlandscaping.com/2017/02/22/disco-fever/ Wed, 22 Feb 2017 06:37:42 +0000 http://issaquahlandscaping.com/?p=299 “Can you dig it? I knew that you could.”  Uttered by characters in the disco classic Saturday Night Fever, that quote was likely to be repeated by show-goers who visited this garden. Disco balls in a formal stone pond, innovative use of multi-level lighting, pillar-like Italian Cypress trees and a mix of evergreen and blooming plants accent the festive patio setting.  This is a place to party. You can safely visit your closet and dig out that old leisure suit without feeling guilty.  Inspirations to take home: Props and accents of a specific theme to create a unique entertainment space.
