This project is located east of lake Washington along a 900 acre preserve with decades old animal trails requiring strict guidelines for landscaping. The clients requested a covered sitting space and that their garden appears to be part of the reserve. Concrete columns support the structure over an IPE wood deck. Low volt lighting, stone and gravel pathways, water feature, and fireplace were added along with native and low maintenance ornamental plantings. The client was awarded wildlife sanctuary status by the Washington State Department of Wildlife. Their wildlife 'neighbors' include; 'Yogi' the black bear, a shy bobcat, 'Wiley' coyote, and a family of raccoons that live in an old tree stump and more.
