2014 Gardens

Teaser photos will be posted in June.

Centennial Tapestry

Aficionados of Craftsman architecture will appreciate the 100 year old house with the 10 year old addition keeping the old charm and style precisely intact. Slip back into the 21st Century as you step through the purple gate into the shaded, whimsical side yard.

Asian Spirits

Expansive and steep, the beauty of this inspiring hillside belies the vision, energy and tenacity of the gardener who preserved the beautiful big leaf maples and cedars, added native species, removed a hillside of blackberries and built a winding stairway from the house to the street below. It took 10 years.

Cote d’Azur

Inspired by the warm beaches and rugged terrain of the south of France, the 2 diverse gardens of this lovely home were designed to embrace the Mediterranean experience.

A Secret Garden

On a secluded, tree-lined dead-end street is a garden gem representing many years of planning and attention to detail.

Joy in Small Things

This small 1928 cottage setting is a gardener’s jewel.

Serenity in Nature

For 40 years the owners have maintained the integrity of this serene garden. Approximately 60% of the plantings are original to the 1949 design by Oliver Ester, protégé to Fredrick Olmsted.

Natural Inspiration

One of the most popular gardens ever in our 20 year history is back again for those that missed the opportunity.

Small Spaces, Big Moments

Plant connoisseurs will appreciate this century old cottage garden in a secluded neighborhood north of Lincoln Park. A series of outdoor “rooms” flow together, maximizing entertainment and garden space as the homeowners take advantage of several micro climates.

Tranquil Outdoor Retreat

Year round attractiveness is achieved in this Northwest style garden with Asian overtones using plants that are both low-maintenance and easy to obtain.

The Barton Street Community Garden

Abundance! This word defines the Barton Street P-Patch, and a stroll through this garden will reveal why. Get up close and personal as we highlight one of this year's West Seattle Garden Tour beneficiaries.
