Carl and Denise have a long, narrow lot with a serpentine driveway, winding through the front yard, ending in a limited parking and turn-around space. They live at the very end of a dead-end road above Poverty Bay in Federal Way. The yard had a few different disjointed levels, some mature plantings here and there, in isolated clumps. It also had one fine looking old apple tree.

On the esthetics side, they wanted to add a garden water feature to display a rock collection and generally make the yard feel less like a random collection of small trees and large shrubs.
It was clear from the start that a comprehensive landscape design plan was needed to sort through options. Measurements and pictures helped us design a concept. The plans addressed deficiencies and identified areas that could be improved. Topography and the narrow lot limited what could be done with the turn-around area near the front door, but we found a spot to add guest parking.
The plan showed ways to enhance the mature landscaping shrubs and trees by adding textured and colorful companion plantings. The stream and garden pond displayed the owner’s rock collection and the plantings incorporated around this area were an added bonus. The stream and pond also became a connection to upper parking area and the lower landscaped area. Plantings were designed to screen the adjacent new house.
This plan helped us to estimate the cost of landscaping. The Jonassons gave us input on the concept, and we fine-tuned our work.

Final details were added, a proposal was signed, and the construction started shortly thereafter. After a few weeks, the Jonassons had a fine new approach to their home through a new front landscape, one that looked like it had been there many years.
All in all, a fine new garden design built for Carl and Denise, and a landscape that fits the setting without being the least bit ordinary.

"Brian did an outstanding job - we appreciate the great service."
George S. - Federal Way, WA
"John listened to what I wanted, and I got
what I wanted. I looked at five different
landscaping companies, went and saw
several yards that each had done. The
others all looked the same, but with
Olympic, they were all different because
they did what their clients wanted. My path
through my yard – it is just as I had dreamed –
very pretty and meandering."
"Nathan arrived right on time, was very professional and I just wanted you to know that!"

"I enjoy watching your crew. They all work so hard and when ever I have a request they always take care of it right away. It’s been a fun project. Thanks. Ray Allis - Federal Way
We love our new landscaped yard! John designed it beautifully. We appreciated you taking notes on our concerns. You have such a great attitude.
We also want to tell you again how much we appreciated the tremendous crew who worked in our yard. Jason was a very good manager who seemed to be everywhere, organizing and getting things done. We were very impressed with how hard Alberto worked and kept up with his young sons. He met the challenge and seemed to always be moving. Ricardo was a very hard worker, and he was very knowledgeable about the names of the plants every time I asked. Adan always was working extra hard, too. His little boy, Giovani, can grow up to be very proud of his father. I hope he remembers to read to him every night. We enjoyed having Dominick here too, with his great smile. It was a pleasure having them all at our home helping to make our yard beautiful. They are such nice people. Olympic Landscape has hired the very best."
