Portland Oregon Landscape Contracting & Design
You found your way here because you value your landscape.
Great spaces are well designed and really work. Beautiful landscapes are carefully built with precision and craft. The best gardens improve with age.
Is that what you want in a landscape?
The first easy step is a free landscape design-build consultation. Ben Bowen, third generation landscaper, will walk your property with you and discuss your goals for the space. Our family will work with yours to create outdoor spaces that feel and function just the way you want them to.

Andrea F. "...it took us six months to get on Joe's construction calendar! Even though the wait time was frustrating, it was SO WORTH THE WAIT. Our home was beautiful, but our front and back yard are now stunning. Our neighbors regularly stop by and thank us for re-doing our yard. I thought our yard was only distasteful to us, but obviously not!
Joe was terrific to work with: responsive, accommodating, easy going, and just a really nice guy. Anytime I had a question, he was there. Any time I've had a concern, he reassured me. If there was a problem, he came down to fix it himself." - Excerpt, read entire review here.
