I began stewarding this four-acre landscape 25 years ago while working as a Wildlife Biologist for the state of Washington. While researching for my book, Landscaping for Wildlife in the Pacific Northwest, I built brush piles for songbirds, rock piles for reptiles and ponds for amphibians. I also created plantings for hummingbirds, butterflies and other pollinators. While writing a second book, Living with Wildlife in the Pacific Northwest, I started experimenting with deer and (sometimes if I’m lucky!) rabbit resistant plants.

Over the past 10 years I’ve been designing more spaces for two-legged creatures. I also have a background in art and have collected and created outdoor art which is on display throughout the gardens.
