Sparhawk Garden Design

Sustainable landscapes inspired by the Pacific NW

We create spaces which are more than objects to be viewed from a window, focusing on immersive experiences intended to draw one into a dynamic and seasonally changing landscape.


Our process involves a collaboration with our clients,  observations of the myriad conditions of the site, extensive knowledge of plant materials and an eye to the whim of our climate so that the gardens we design are sustainable as well as beautiful.

Over 20 years of experience we have developed a community of makers and artisans who speak the languages of wood, stone, metal and water to bring these built elements into our designed spaces.

We adhere to the philosophy that anyone can afford a beautiful garden with the right tools and knowledge. We offer several tiers of service, starting with simple garden consultations all the way up to project management for the full design/build of all aspects of your landscape from start to finish.

How we work

Resilient Designs


Our job is first to listen. Interpreting the nuance of a clients vision is the first step in a rigorous and organized process to design and deliver landscapes of plant communities that thrive in beauty and function.


About Us

We build resilient gardens that fulfill the needs of our clients as well as enable organic practices for healthy habitats – birds, bees and all the creatures that experience our gardens, including our neighbors and the community at large. You can read more about who we are and what inspires our commitment, not only to eco design, but also to social and environmental justice.


We might think we are nurturing our garden, but of course it’s our garden that is really nurturing us”. — Jenny Uglow
