Lake Oswego is a fantastic place to live! The city of Lake Oswego, OR does a great job of protecting it's water, land, and urban forest. This does, however, make completing a landscaping project extra challenging. Ross NW Watergardens has many completed projects in Lake Oswego. We know what codes and regulations come into play and are comfortable working with the city. Use our experience to your advantage!
Hardscaping can involve many different materials, both man made and natural. Stone masonry, on the other hand, is only about stone. Natural stone, slate, and boulders are not easy to work with. Our experienced masons have the skill required to craft long lasting masonry elements that will enhance your Portland home's landscaping.
We design and build stone retaining wall, seating walls, slate patios, fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, and more. Our skill with stone is one of the advantages we offer all our landscape clients!
Ross NW Watergardens loves setting boulders in our landscapes. We have braided metal cables that are custom manufactured just for us. These cables allow us to carefully lift large boulders and set them exactly the way we want.
We believe that very few Portland landscapers have the ability to utilize boulders the way we do. Rock of all sizes is a fundamental element of a great landscape. Shouldn't your landscape contractor be an expert in handling them? Our boulder setting method is described in this article.
If the basic structure of your garden is complete, let us come and plant it! We design planting lists and plans for any style.
We especially enjoy the challenge of low water use landscapes. Native plant gardens and edible gardens are also a specialty.
What is your style? Let us put together a plant list that fits you!
Fences and Garden Structures
The Pacific Northwest is blessed with an abundance of natural wood choices. Cedar especially can be a great addition to your landscape. Check out this video featuring our Landscape Manager, Ben Bowen, and some of the fences we build.

Low Voltage Landscape Lighting
Landscape lighting allows you to enjoy your garden for more hours every day.
Just a few well placed lights can reveal your landscape in a whole new way. Let our skilled landscape designers put together a lighting plan for your landscape.
LED low voltage lamps are very efficient and last for years. You put so much into your landscape- why not enjoy it at night!
Sometimes you don't need a new landscape. You just need to repair the one you have. Ross NW Watergardens offers irrigation repair, water feature repairs, and low voltage lighting repairs. We specialize in difficult troubleshooting- the stuff you (and maybe even other landscapers) just can't figure out. For small or emergency fixes we have a time and material rate. We charge a service call of $85.00, and $65.00 per hour plus materials. Have a more substantial repair? We can assess the damage and give you an estimate.
