On The Street…Phinney Ridge, Seattle, WA

 

This garden home combination caught my eye.  Winter can be challenging season for gardens to look to their best. The color story this garden with the paint scheme of the home allows this home to look good in any season. The owner reported that they were the first in their neighborhood to pull out the lawn and plant their entire front yard. (Aren’t you glad they did!)  She mentioned that at first the neighbors were not quite convinced and were wondering how this would all turn out. Well, as you can see it’s wonderful, the neighbors love it and in the sincerest form of flattery, many have done similar front yard gardens.   Two interesting notes: 1, The owner said they selected the paint colors and repainted the home to visually complement the garden. 2, There are some brown sedums near the sidewalk, that’s not something that was overlooked at garden clean up time, the owner selected them because the color is so right with the home this time of year. Don’t you agree?

    As a reader from Chicago, I find your examples of gardens and buildings from Seattle (and Flroida) exciting and refreshing!! Your explanations of architectural details are informational and thoughful. Keep them coming!

      Hi Missmargie,
      Thank you, it’s great to hear from readers in other cities! Chicago is an “Arch Observer” type city and I look forward to doing a photo tour there as soon as my schedule permits.
      Cheers,
      Albert
