The Giffords' garden transformed a blank concrete canvas into a beautiful private get-away at this home in Portland's beautiful Ladd's Addition neighborhood.
Vibrant perennials and stunning grasses make the most of the back yard's sun coverage, creating a nice contrast with the house color and the custom walkways.
Shadier areas in the garden are defined by a range of deep greens, creeping ground cover, mosses, and more grasses.
We love the stones in the Giffords' pathways, especially the unusual fittings and the rust red against slate.
The repurposing of stone and natural gradations in the garden gave us plenty of opportunity to play with different views and arrangements.
