Peters backyard

Back

 

I had to prop up the 25-year-old wisteria vine while I replaced the rotted old fence in this Seattle backyard. 

 

I also converted one of the windows to a doorway, as you can see in the background of the first two images. 

 

I call this particular client’s aesthetic “fairy zen,”  because she cultivates a meditative stillness in her yard, while sprinkled throughout, like Easter eggs, are little pixies and amulets.  It is a magical synthesis of playful and reverent.
