About grounded

Our purpose is to create environments that enrich lives

And we are "grounded" in three things that help us realize this purpose:


Firstly, we are "grounded" in world-class design and construction. Our designers bring qualifications including PhDs, Masters and Bachelors Degrees in landscape architecture, design and horticulture. Our construction crews are passionate artisans that take pride in their work. Our processes and systems foster collaboration, knowledge sharing and continuous improvement so that we consistently deliver innovative landscapes that exceed our customers' expectations and set us apart in the marketplace. 

Secondly, we are "grounded" in ecology. Our expertise is centered on a deep awareness of the many factors that have to be considered when altering the ground. Whilst our landscape solutions bring people together and optimize the use of outdoor space we also are designing for enhancing soil health, restoring native ecosystems and supporting bio-diversity. 


Thirdly, we are "grounded" in our community. We are proud of living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and actively contribute to the health and beauty of our local communities. We take pride in supporting local non-profits such as the Beacon Food Forest and taking on pro-bono projects across the East Side.


Our Process

Our process consists of four key stages; initial consultation, design, contracting / scheduling, and construction. Throughout the process our strong customer orientation is evident in how we listen, respond and generally engage with our clients. This approach creates a shared sense of alignment and ownership for the project.


1. Initial Consultation

A designer travels to your home, reviews your land and listens to your vision and aspirations. The designer marries your desires with the needs of the land to form a preliminary perspective of the project. A proposal for design is then presented and you can decide if you would like to move forward.

2. Draft Design

The design process starts with a detailed mapping of your land. This is translated into AutoCAD and that's when the design magic begins.  Concept(s) are then presented to you, your feedback captured and the design updated.

3. Confirm Design
& Schedule Build

The designer will meet you to review the final design and construction bid. If you decide to move forward with the project the contract is signed, a deposit is paid and  the work is scheduled.  


4. Construction

Our project manager will guide you through the construction process and keep you informed as our hard working construction crews complete the project.
