Ken Nesland Seattle Landscape Design is headed by Ken Nesland, renowned landscape designer, Seattle centric. Not a landscape architect, Ken is a natural visual artistic designer with expertise in Seattle horticulture. In business since 1974, Ken is well known as the designer and installer of the Seattle Home Show's Feature Garden. He delighted visitors to the show over six consecutive years. More important, Ken has surprised customers throughout the Seattle area with unique and gorgeous landscape architecture for their residences. His work is found across the Seattle area in middle class neighborhoods and upper income neighborhoods, alike. Look for his work in Woodinville, Kirkland, Bellevue, Magnolia, Mill Creek and other areas.
Today Ken is focused on architecting a limited number of unique specialized landscape designs each year. Any artist will tell you there is a difference between an original and a limited production run and Ken is no exception. Ken now focuses on only original landscape architectures, and the residents of Seattle are the beneficiaries. With over 25 years growing his landscape designer's artistic expression, Ken has proven himself time and again. Make no mistake, Ken is not a landscape architect, a product of hours sitting in classrooms for days on end! He isn't hired by his clients because he got A's on drafting tests. Ken is hired for his skills as a landscape design artist who uses plant and earthen materials as his palette, and his artwork is a testament to that.
Seattle landscaping can be and often is the largest investment you make in your property beyond the residence itself. It is an extension of your home and completes your abode. Seattle landscapers are great but they are not Seattle landscape architects. Seattle landscaping is too expensive to install and too much an extension of your personality and your home to execute without building a landscape design first. Since landscapes are living growing art objects, the architectural design has to comprehend not only the initial design but also what the design will grow in to over time. After all, at some point you will want to sell your home, and your the architecture of your landscaping can be the difference between selling in 30 days or one year; especially in neighborhoods where the houses are of similar design. Seattle Landscapers that provide 'free estimates' and 'free designs' are providing quick off the hip cookie cutter solutions with little thought to your needs, your yards unique location, or your yards longer term existence. They also are providing little to no landscape architect value. If you are planning a landscape design in excess of $10,000 you owe it to yourself to get a professional landscape design consultation.
Seattle landscape architects are great but they are expensive and usually do not retain ownership of the landscaping work itself. In that respect, they are very much like a building architect. They will do detailed designs, CAD drawings, and three dimensional views of the proposed landscape. Unlike these Seattle landscape architects, Ken Nesland will analyze your needs and your property. As your landscape designers he will develop landscaping sketches and do work ups of your property based on consultations with your needs, desires, wants and budget. He will advise you on plant material, layering, growth, and seasonality. He will carefully architect both hardscape and softscape solutions to your needs and provide you all you need to hire a Seatlle landscaper. In short, Ken will paint you a landscape as unique as you and your needs are.
Ken can also turnkey, supervise or consult on landscape contractor installation assuring that your job is done right and to specification. Ken can also do the landscape installation through his landscape division.
