Landscape Project Portfolio

"Dear Wan-Chi, I checked my calendar a few days ago and realized that Classic Nursery will be doing our spring maintenance work very soon. It is hard to believe that it has been over a year since we completed the hardscape and landscaping of our new home here in Bellevue...I have become a consistent user of organic products and methods for all of my planting and fertilizing. I was gratified that you not only agreed with my convictions but were able to implement them in the work that was done on our property. Thank you very much for being an advocate and not an impediment. I would also like to recognize you for the artistic sensitivity and skillful eyes that you brought to our rather large project. Your insights were very helpful in visualizing what the yard would look like upon completion and in the years to come. I can hardly wait to see what it will look when three full growing seasons have past. I think it is going to be even more beautiful... I was completely ignorant of the unique climate of the northwestern United States. Your help in making the right plant choices for the new home were crucial to the long term success of our landscaping vision. Supplies at the local plant markets at the time I started the project were very limited. I appreciate the enthusiasm with which you searched for the best choices and the constant efforts you made to find sufficient suitable plants. Your judgement in selecting and recommending the right plants for the Seattle area was sound. The evidence of that fact is now growing in my front and back yard. I was worried that the heavy cold rain that persisted all winter would damage the roots of the new plants and the recent transplants. My yard was soaked and wet all winter and I feared that many plants would die. Therefore, I am happy to report that almost 100% of the plants appear to be alive and doing well. Almost all have swollen bud, new leaves or flowers already, though the first day of spring was only a few days ago. All of the perennial grasses are showing signs of growth. I look forward to working with you this spring at our regularly scheduled maintenance event so that we can continue to improve the health and beauty of our outdoor spaces. Best Regards,"

Outline of outdoor kitchens

We can plan and build your outdoor kitchen. These units are usually built from metal assembled frames that are veneered with stone, but can also be built from modular block components. Don't let another contractor snowball your kitchen budget, as there are many factors that go into these, from choice of appliances to coordinating the gas line and 110v GFI receptacles, drawer units, counter finishes...sometimes potable water and as always, the efficient use of space - we resolve it all to integrate well into your architectural style and most importantly - to fit within your comfortable budget range.

Services Provided:

  • Patios

    We do a lot of patios. Keep in mind that you may need a slightly bigger space than you think to set a four-person table where you can still move your chair back without stepping onto the adjacent lawn or bed area.

    First you determine the shape and then you choose the materials. We'll give you a catalog showing stone selections as well as other types of paving to help you choose. You can also visit our sample library in Redmond for more information.

    Add pots and a few Adirondack chairs and...well, suffice it to say that we have to look at the size carefully.
