Portland Modern Landscape Design & Construction

The repetition of strong geometric forms. Layered mass plantings. Clean lines created by hardscape. Bold textures and colors used with purpose. These are the fundamental building blocks we use to create modern functional gardens.

The proportions and elements are flexible, allowing for variety.

Add an accent from Asian gardens or impose the demands of sustainable gardening to create a modern landscape design that fits your family perfectly. Whatever form your landscape is going to take, Ross NW Watergardens can help you get it there.
