Landscape design and plans for forested hillside residence in Eugene, Oregon.

A new family was building a new house on a new lot in a new on a new neighborhood street at the base of Spencer's Butte. They needed a cheap landscape designer, and I needed a forgiving audience to practice skills.

Scope of work included site measurement and analysis for a base plan. It made proposals for drainage, front deck, back deck and plantings. I proposed shade and wet loving hillside native plants, like swordfern and vine maples, but the owners had their own ideas.
