Creating Beautiful Views and Restoring Natural Functions

We collaborate with clients, engineers, architects and other landscape architects to create enduring shoreline designs that are an amenity for our clients and restore natural functions for our communities. We carefully shape the water's edge to provide a stable and more natural shoreline stabilization as well as to accentuate water access and views. Our team works closely with permitting agencies to ensure the project's approval and sound construction.

The City of Seattle notably featured our shoreline restoration work in its 2008 Green Shorelines guide (.pdf) for homeowners considering bulkhead removal. We also helped design and permit one of the first projects accredited by the state's Green Shores For Homes program.
