Contemporary Garden Design

Do you see what I see?  Something hiding among the thick vegetation.  Ah!  There it is!  Construction has officially begun at LandCurrent’s latest project, fondly referred to as Prado Parrilla, in the South Hills of Eugene.  Inspired by the homeowner’s Brazilian influence, Prado refers to the expansive, central meadow design, and Parrilla gives homage to the fabulous outdoor grill that will bring so much energy into this open, lively space.  So exciting!  As you can see, work on the sloping terrain is beginning the transformation.  At the cornice, a delightful artificial turf  slope, sized just right for a young, energetic slider, is a top priority.  Rather than selecting typical playground fare, this no-maintenance, perpetually verdant surface will allow for a variety of play options in an open, naturalistic meadow.  We anticipate this being one of the site’s most heavily-used features.  The more, the better, we say.  (lz)
