New Landscape Design for a Tigard Home
As we progress through fall and things slow down a bit for us at All Oregon Landscaping, we’ve decided that now is the perfect time to catch everyone up on our busy summer and some of the projects we’ve tackled. We installed kitchens, retaining walls, fireplaces, water features, and more that we can’t wait to share photos of. Today, we’ll highlight one of the smaller, but sweeter projects we did in Tigard.
This home just needed a focal point and change of direction. You want your guests to approach your house not from the driveway but from a dedicated entry point. By creating the entry point off of the sidewalk, the house became warm and inviting and provided direction to guests. Add in some plantings, lighting and other yard accents and now you have a beautiful, and envy-worthy front yard. Curb appeal, you bet, and don’t forget the increase in value to the overall house. Here are some pretty dramatic before and after photos.

The following are just a few of the things we took care of for this Tigard client.
- Retaining wall to deal with sloped front yard and to provide a small area of usable lawn space in upper area and a planting area in front of the wall (street level) to soften the wall.
- Boulders, plant material and lighting for small courtyard to provide nice visual from front door and main kitchen window.
- Expanded the driveway on both sides. The expansion was not for cars to park on but to give those individuals exiting and entering the automobile extra room. It allows the cars to park close to the edge of the slab but feel expansive.
- Paver patio at front entry.
- Paver walkway and steps leading from front entry to front sidewalk.
- Paver pathway on left side of house leading from front to back yard. Notice how the walkway has flow. Your house is already angular so soften the parts you can and add curves.
- Trees, plants, boulders, lighting and irrigation throughout the front and left side yard.
Yes, we design and install large projects but some of our favorite projects are the smaller designs. We can help you transform your yard into a enviable showcase.
