The space outside our homes is precious. I believe that a garden should be a welcoming place to be enjoyed all year round. I strive to create inviting, uplifting landscapes that people love to be in, that complement and connect a house with its surroundings.
Hello, I'm Richard Lambert. I design, install and maintain gardens and landscapes and do so with great care and attention to detail. My dynamic, plant rich landscapes celebrate seasonal change and the natural beauty of the Inland Northwest.
In my pragmatic approach to the design process, I consider each project and each client individually. I aim to tackle the problems and to enhance the benefits of each site. Plants, materials and practices are chosen as appropriate to each project, to ensure a long-lasting, manageable space.
I am opposed to boring, toxic, wasteful landscaping - opposed to chemical lawns, wobbly concrete and plastic edging going nowhere, inappropriate pruning of shrubs into foolish shapes, vast swathes of mulch or gravel dotted with lonely plants and mismatched boulders, the irrigation of sidewalks, etc, etc.
