The Builders: Part 1

Todd Benevedes and family

Todd Benevedes, owner of Elliott Bay Landscape Design Inc., worked his magic again this year.  He has assisted in building show gardens for members of d4collective for the last three years.  He and his crews performed the difficult tasks of show construction management, infrastructure construction, low voltage lighting, stone wall construction, as well as take-down after the show.

Todd devised the technique to support the ‘Richlite’ retaining walls for d4collective’s show garden enclosure.  His crews carefully lay a drystacked wall which supported an inside curve and an outside curve of the garden enclosure.

Todd Benevedes at Elliott Bay Landscape Design Inc. has built gardens in many neighborhoods of the Greater Seattle area for members of d4collective.  Might yours be next?
