The art of design is coaxing beauty from what exists.
— Susan Harrison, founder and co-owner

Distinctive landscape design marries architecture to its unique environment in a way that is thoughtful, personal, functional, & timeless. Skilled and experienced craftspeople are equally important to realize the promise of such design. We at Private Gardens have been living, working, and crafting beautiful outdoor spaces throughout Whatcom, Skagit, Island, and San Juan counties for over 20 years.
