About

Thanks for visiting my blog.

A little bit about myself: I am a certified landscape designer and the owner of All Seasons Landscape Design in Battle Ground, Washington.  I find a lot of joy in taking that which has little purpose or vibrancy and breathing new life into it.  I believe we should be good stewards of our yards, and garden and landscape responsibly.  I believe gardening should not be for a select few, as everyone should reward themselves with the many benefits that accompany it.  I believe a well-designed yard can and should beckon one outside more, teem with life, diversity, and color, evoke the emotions, convey personality, inspire the neighbors, and fulfill all of its desired purposes, from utilitarian to aesthetic.

I hope you find this blog to be informative or of interest.  I would love to hear from you with a comment or question.

  1. Thanks for becoming my newest follower, Luke. I look forward to reading more of your posts. I think it’s neat that you can mesh your occupation of landscape design with your love of birds.

    • Thanks Jo Ann, I think I have yet to know of an avid gardener that doesn’t also have some sort of appreciation, interest and care for the birds. This may even inspire me to work on another blog post, studying that relation between gardening and birding. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi Luke

    I really enjoy your blog. I think we have a mutual friend- Ryan Loghry. He’s the one who introduced me to your blog. I live in Battle Ground- would be great to meet you sometime. I’m a native Northwesterner who loves trees and wildflowers so we might have a thing or two to chat about!

    • Hi Matt, thanks for reading! Nice to meet a fellow Battle Groundian (not sure if that’s the correct term) and friend of Ryan’s. God’s handiwork is definitely captivating to me, such order and beauty to be found all around us. Maybe one of these days we could all catch up on a hike, I need more excuses to get out and do that!

  3. Hey Luke–discovered your blog this evening while researching Cornus sericea for my website, http://www.nwplants.com. Your thoughts about our Pacific northwest native plants are refreshing. Any chance you’d allow me to use some of your photos in the online magazine I write monthly? My site is educational, in no way for monetary profit–just spreading the word about natives. Let me know what you think please. At any rate, congrats on this bog. It’s definitely worth following.

    • Thank you Jennifer, I’m glad you stumbled upon this! I’d be happy to let you use the photos for your site. I have been to your site many times before in my own search for knowledge or plant-perusing; I can tell it is a labor of love for you.
