Through careful planning and site evaluation, we work with our clients to select the best plants to create a quality landscape.
From large trees to hedges, to perennial flower or herb gardens, we use our expertise in soils, plant needs, and local climate and weather trends to create quality and durable landscape plantings for gardens.
Because of our mild climate, we are able to use many types of plants not found in other parts of Oregon, adding unusual texture and color to yards. We specialize in offering four seasons of color and interest to landscapes in our area, adding fragrance, foliage, and flowers year round.
Quality planting begins with high quality plant material from our nursery. The next step is careful planning in installation: placing the plant in the landscape in the best location to assure its growing success. We use our signature Royal Soil product to install all our landscapes, a blend of organic topsoil, compost, and manures designed specifically for plant happiness.
Starting with site preparation, great lawn installation includes grading for drainage, then adding quality soil and compost, along with fertilizers and nutrients, to adjust the soil pH. We use sod that is grown just 50 miles from here, installed the same day it is harvested. Our fescue lawns require less water and can survive the windy cool coastal conditions of our area better than the perennial rye grasses of the past. For lower costs but and great results, we also install seeded lawns, using the same techniques as sod lawns, using top quality fescue or rye grass seeds depending on the customer’s preferences.
Patios & Walkways
Living spaces, such as patios and walkways, are an important part of great landscapes. From pavers to flagstone to gravel, walkways create the paths to travel while patios add the space to stop and rest. Our patios and walkways are constructed using experienced construction methods, taking into account grading, drainage, and type of material to create quality surfaces for years to come.
Slopes can add dimension and useable garden spaces by controlling hillsides with concrete block walls or boulders. Block walls create a more finished look that can add terraced areas for additional plantings and retain areas by driveways and buildings. Boulder walls add a more rustic element, holding less steep slopes and creating visual planting areas on hillsides.
The sound of water enhances any landscape. From a gurgling jar water feature installed in a path, to a bubbling creek falling down a rock waterfall into a pond, we can create the captivating water experience for you. Through the use of biofalls planting systems, we can incorporate natural ways to help keep your water feature clean.
