ANLD 13th Annual Designers Garden Tour

Self-Tour Seven Glorious Gardens on Portland’s West Side

Plan-it Earth Design is pleased to be a featured designer at one of Portland’s premier garden events.  Our garden is located in the Terra Linda neighborhood of NW Portland.

Terri’s garden fits her neighborhood and 1967 home, where gracious lawn spaces reign.  From the kitchen window, birds can be seen in a Cornelian Cherry.

The backyard is a study in hydrology.  Irrigation from uphill joins with lawn drains while a pulsing pump pushes water up to the street. Wetland plantings are established, with thirsty trees reducing incoming water and a perennial border entertaining pollinators.

This low maintenance garden includes plants appropriate to this unique site and its conditions.

A shimmering bubbler is visible from the back door with nearby seating in the shade. Terri can now age in place with simplified circulation for easy access throughout the garden and lower maintenance overall.


The design of Terri’s garden was a collaboration between Amy Whitworth of Plan-it Earth Design  and Lora Price of Design with Nature 


The installation and execution of this fine garden is attributed to Jaylene Walter of J.Walter Landscape & Irrigation (also a tour sponsor)
