Galaher Garden Design

I had the pleasure today, of meeting Megan Galaher who specializes in urban garden design for Portland homes. Whether modernization is the approach, or drought resistant gardens with year round interest, she is well trained to conceptualize and execute gorgeous gardens that require as little maintenance as possible.

Originally from San Francisco, she learned to love landscaping through her experience working in the garden of a private residence in her home town. She attended Lewis and Clark as an art major, and after extensive traveling came back to Portland deciding to settle here and choosing the garden industry as a way to express her art and design background.

Patterns and repetition are a theme that is often repeated in her work, along with color flow and exceptional layering techniques as evidenced in her keen eye towards height variations and the relationship of plants to each other.

For best results she may be hired for a full service approach including consultation, plans, plant procurement and installation, but also offers a one hour consultation, or can draft plans to hand over to a client for their own execution.

A similar idea: the book light by Studio MS:
