Powelswood Garden

From the NPA Open Garden book, "A Northwest pleasure garden tucked in a Federal Way neighborhood, the three acres of Powelswood are nestled against another thirty-five acres of native successional forest. The forward-looking garden harmoniously blends luxurious foliage color and the powerful lines of defining hedges against the backdrop of its native trees. It is English in inspiration, with distinct garden rooms, that range from woodland to sub-tropical in feel, featuring more than a thousand varieties of trees, shrubs and perennials."

With that description, enjoy the tour. 







































































Back to where we started, a cool, shady place to rest a bit before getting into a hot car for the drive home. 
Three wonderful gardens on July 14th, another great Saturday of NPA garden touring.

  1. A beautiful garden, just right for the passing of a hot afternoon. I was surprised to see the palms, but I forget how different your northern climate is from here in Vermont.

  4. I love Powellswood, it's a beautiful garden. I missed their open day for NPA members, but I can still go any other day and just pay to see it. I might wait till the weather cools off a bit though. Thanks for sharing your photos.

  5. It looks like all of these gardens try to outdo one another. It's very competitive. The blurb about the garden caught my attention. They use the expression "powerful lines" what does the photo show? Power lines!

  10. Really lovely garden! Somehow, it reminds me of yours, with some open pastures of grass, thoughtful plantings that contrast for drama, and a loving peaceful natural feel.
