The last blog in the garden series this week features the work of David Pfeiffer, our favorite Northwest landscape designer – in fact he is our favorite in the entire country. With a real dedication to his craft, he treats an outdoor area the same way an architect or interior designer treats a house. This is what makes his gardens truly unique and magnificent. They are suited for each individual site and homeowner. With many accolades, David Pfeiffer is much sought after, completing projects for well known architects and clients. Below are some of our favorites.
The following few images are for a project he did with David Smith on Vashon Island. It’s very zen – you can find the rest of the article here.
This house is located in Vuecrest – I’m sure some of you will recognize the garden.
Another landscape he did in the area – this time in Medina.
A project in Santa Barbara.
And another garden in Vashon – I think this is our favorite. Of course the house is so charming, too.
There is even a horse!
A few more great images.
I didn’t know this until I looked at his entire portfolio on his website – he designed the entrance to Canlis.
His gardens have such a magical quality about them, it was a real pleasure compiling the images. As I was looking through them, I noticed how well his gardens photograph. That in itself is an accomplishment – they wouldn’t photograph so well if they didn’t have the same level of depth of colors, different shades of green, and varying textures.
