Floral Hill

In the Fall of 2010, this project was completed on a steeply-sloped site adjacent to Hendricks Park in Eugene.  The clients were seeking to expand their usable space and increase the sense of privacy on their property.  Working with them through a design, and building with her contractor, I created a pair of rounded platforms to take advantage of the spectacular view from the hill behind their home.

    Hi Ethan,


    Love to see a photo when it’s all done, growing and in full bloom. You and Lanara did a great job designing all of this!

    Peace & Light,
