Gardens of Gig Harbor 'Harbor Living' sites include:

  • The Gardens of Peggy Fox: A Plant Lovers Showstopper!This notable "Harbor Living' garden has been featured byBetter Homes & GardenandFine Gardening Magazine(and here, too).Sloping down to the water in a series of separate gardens, this waterfront property features a greenhouse, vegetable garden, a garden for shade lovers, andplanting bed filled with sun loving plant favorites. This garden is a lesson in color combinations and plant selections, and also features a pond lending movement to the landscape as the garden continues down to the water with paths, steps, terraces, and a rockery. This property is sure to excite and inspire.

  • Twin View Gardens.What was once a nearly sheer drop-off that looked onto a half-acre of swampy, mole-pocked land covered with blackberries and weeds has been transformed into a landscape that showcases dual gardens on either side of a majestic ridge which overlooks Henderson Bay,and the Olympics to the west and a pastoral greenbelt rimmed by a ridge of tall pines to the east. While dramatically different topography exists on both sides of our ridge, repeated elements provide unity. The 30’ tall main rockery connects the front landscapes via stone steps and is echoed by a smaller rockery to the north. An alpine meadow of ornamental strawberries spills down between the two rockeries, inviting one to visit the Meadow Garden, where a flowing creek splashes between the various levels of lawn and garden beds. A foot bridge crosses the creek which terminates in a dry bed. The Meadow Garden is anchored by a stunning 100+ year old pear tree. The Bay Garden in the back of the landscape is all about the view. The curved beds draw one’s eye to the Bay, and the water feature creates a sense of intimacy in the midst of grandeur. Vibrant ground covers, carpet roses and annual color spots ensure that Twin View Gardens are in bountiful bloom from early spring through late fall.

  • Enjoy lunch in the garden at Rosedale Gardens.The beautifully landscaped grounds feature easy walking paths as well as nature trails. Sit and enjoy the peaceful setting, be inspired by original garden designs filled with bronze sculptures, original works of art, fountains, and statuary while surrounded by a nursery stocked with unique annuals, perennials, dwarf conifers, trees and shrubs.You might even find something to take home!

  • Ship To Sail.Neighboring commercial sites, located in historic downtown Gig Harbor, present unique stories of use and purpose.James Moore, Heron Landscaping, will share the behind the scene lessons learned from design challenges to ongoing maintenance of a commercial site located in a high traffic community centered location..
