Before and After: Portland, Oregon Patio for Wildlife Watching

Peter and Stacy have enjoyed living in their home in Portland, Oregon, for many years. They love that their backyard is up against a natural area.
Their idea for a dream landscape was to create a relaxing atmosphere to include a new patio for entertaining and a water feature that will attract wildlife.
Here’s what they had to say about their new yard: “Thank you for a beautiful stream, pond, patio and backyard! Jim knew exactly what it needed immediately and created a wildlife friendly oasis and a perfect horizontal trellis hiding an underdeck area.”

    Its beautiful I would love to have a place to sit and watch the birds and other wild life, there's nothing like it for relaxation. One day my dream will come true one beautiful day. Lily C Canada

    That is the reason I like where we live, a few minutes drive, and you have corn and beans growing, hawks soaring, eagles catching fish in the rivers in town. I could not live where this stuff doesn't live, but I do not like living in the country. This way we have both, city and country. Des Moines, IA
