Landscape Design / Build For Portland, OR

A modern approach to sustainable landscapes.

Landscaping in Portland means you have options. Shaded woodland gardens thrive. Contemporary landscaping is on the rise. Low water use, low maintenance, and native landscapes blossom. Japanese gardens fit alongside "Backyard Habitats".  Your perfect garden may even be a combination of all these.

You found your way here because you need help to plan, design, and implement your perfect outdoor space. Ross NW Watergardens' three generations of landscaping expertise are ready to take the lead!

Let's Start Right Now.

Residential Landscape Designers

Our landscape designer, Ben Bowen, will meet with you to begin the design process. 

Ben will collaborate with you to create a landscape design tailored to your family's lifestyle. Your home's style and your property's challenges will be taken into consideration too.

We insist that your landscape plan work in reality- not just impress on paper. Let's create a garden that demands to be used, even in Portland's rain!

Your preferences are the ones that matter. As you can see from our portfolio of designed gardens, we produce beautiful landscapes in a variety of styles.
