Courtyard Story in the Oregonian

Posted by Crystal Van Wyk

Carolyn Marieb did a very nice article in the Homes and Gardens section of the Oregonian last Thursday that she interviewed our principal, Sam, for. Sam gave pointers about designing a courtyard that expresses who the homeowner is, invites visitors to the correct door, and looks beautiful from the street as well as from within. There are more tips in the article as well as pictures of several entry gardens, which you can see here.

Also, just for fun, here's a picture from the SHWA archive of one of our front entry gardens. This view is from the side of the house looking towards the street.
