Big Time Fig time!

Love ’em or hate ’em…that’s how people seem to feel about fresh figs.  There’s a limited window of time that figs are ripe in Seattle, and if you are fig lover you should plant ‘Desert King’ Fig to add to your edible landscape .  This is a semi-cold tolerant  green skinned fig that has pink flesh…


Can you add that new garage or nice covered kitchen?

  Here in Seattle, I’ve been spending some time downtown reviewing Land Use and Permit code questions for our clients at the newly renamed Department of Construction and Inspections (formally known as DPD).Question: What’s the code on adding that new outdoor covered kitchen area, or new garages?  Here’s a quick cheat sheet to help you…

Love the rusted steel planters

Houzz user poyskyj asked us: Would you have any idea of the price of one similar to the smaller one and 10-15′ long. Thanks. Answer: Hi….the planters are custom fabricated. Pricing depends on how much can be cut out of specific steel sheets, which required a bid. 10-15′ is long so it would have seams in it and…


Can you tell me how you got this color? I am about to start my pool decking. Thanks!

Houzz user heidihjorth asked us about our concrete-finishing techniques. Answer: Thanks! This is an integral color ‘tan’ concrete with a Scofield Lithochrome Chemstain finish ‘Antique Amber’ I believe. I’d suggest having your concrete contractor make you a sample so you are sure. The linear joints are sawcut, which gives a sharper look.


Love the stone color. Where did you get it. What is the name of it?

Question: Houzz visitor jillmassey asked us about the stone in this installation   Answer: Thank you. Its called Ocean Pearl Natural. Its a true stone veneer (not a manufactured concrete). In Seattle region, supplier is Marenakos Rock Center. There are regional names for stone, so suggest you look at your local suppliers for a match.
