Ross NW Watergardens' Reviews:
BJ - I've worked with dozens of contractors over the years and Ben is one of the very best in professionalism, ethics and craftsmanship. Their work is professional, thoughtful and thorough. Ben's communication is excellent; he's very thoughtful about the project and making sure the client's needs are met. In our case, he surpassed our expectations... Full Review on Yelp
Tim B. The crew was very professional, hard working and knew their trade(s) extremely well. They cleaned up the area on a daily basis and the entire work-site when complete. The finished product is amazing - we're very happy with all aspects of the design, materials used and workmanship. We would highly recommend Ross NW Watergardens to anyone - in fact we did, our neighbors just got their yard done and it looks great too. -Houzz
Advice For Your West Linn Garden:
I have relatives that visit every summer. I look forward to them coming, enjoy spending time with them, and then am happy to see them go.
Perennials are kind of like that.
Perennial plants pop up in spring, bloom (usually fantastically), and then slowly fade. By the time fall rolls around around you are happy to cut them back. Anticipation for their arrival starts to build again in February and the cycle is repeated.
But which perennials are best for your West Linn garden? There are so many choices, and it is easy to get overwhelmed at the nursery. Here are 5 that I really love and am pretty sure you will too. These choices are not cutting edge, and if you are a plant person you already know about them. But if you want some great color, that you can't kill, and that doesn't demand too much? These will work quite well:
1- Astilbe. Not too fussy, tons of colors, towers of blooms and they are happy in the shade that is common on West Linn. Plant these in big swaths and bring a little more joy to your springs.
2- Peony. There are not many blooms more dramatic than these. The clumps get bigger and bigger each year and are great for cutting and bringing into the home.
3- Autumn Joy Sedum. A rare fall blooming perennial. These pair really well with succulent ground covers and fine bladed grasses.
4- Coneflower. I love the great structure of the plant body, and the way the petals fall back from the center of the bloom is really special.
5- Geum. A rustic and tough little herbaceous plant, with blooms that rise surprisingly high. Afraid you will kill you plants? Get some geum, they can handle it.
