Holmes Point Residential Beach Restoration and Landscape
Holmes Point, Kirkland, Lake Washington, WA
Owners of a waterfront residence on Holmes Point in Kirkland wanted to restore their shoreline to a more natural state and remove 18,000 square feet of ivy on a steep slope. Landscape architects designed a native plant shoreline restoration plan and a phased hillside landscape plan that carefully removed ivy over a three-year period and reestablished slope protection with a drought-tolerant plant palette. Along with the addition of a new infinity-edge pool, the shoreline landscape was re-imagined, framing views of Lake Washington and Mount Rainier with native and drought tolerant trees, shrubs, and perennials. The homeowners appreciate the low-maintenance plants and creative layout of their outdoor spaces.
