- Water retention earthworks: Rain gardens
- Stone retaining wall / crevice garden / rock habitat
- Woodchip pathways
- Nurse logs / stumps for habitat and space definition
- PNW native + West Coast native + Edible plants
Apprioriate west coast species and some fun drought tolerance bonus’ were included. Client’s favorite was Cercis occidentalis - When that is the case, we know we are on the same page!
Within the boulders we integrated some carefully crafted soil with fast drainage and planted succulents and other plants that thrive in crevice gardens. This was our first practice creating “crevice garden” features within a retaining wall - a practice we have continued expanding upon ever since.
