Hi! I am Ben Bowen, Head Landscape Designer at Ross NW Watergardens in Portland, OR. We are a residential landscape design/build firm with a focus on the use of stone and water. "Landscaping For Your Modern Family" is our motto.
My backstory: I am a third generation landscaper. Starting at the age of 15 I would get up at 5am to install irrigation timers in new subdivisions on the outskirts of Phoenix, AZ. In my early 20's I worked for a stone mason in Westchester County, NY. About 15 years ago I moved to Portland and started working with my dad at Ross NW Watergardens.
I take pride in creating landscapes that really work. Clients work with me for the beauty of the ideas, not the beauty of the ink on paper. Which is a good thing- because I can't draw. I produce simple CAD based drawings, and then Ross NW watergardens turns them into great gardens.
We work with residential clients all over the Portland Metro, including Lake Oswego, West Linn, Beaverton, and Tigard.
Their are many styles I am confortable working in, but I have a soft spot for Asian-inspired gardens and Mid-Century Modern homes.
Contact me today and I will be happy to set up a free consultation.
Our LCB is 9085
