PowellsWood Garden - Federal Way, Washington

PowellsWood Gardens
430 South Dash Point Road
Federal Way, Washington

A cultivated paradise hidden in Federal Way’s residential suburbs, the three acres of PowellsWood are nestled against another thirty-five acres of native successional forest. The garden design features eight unique rooms graced with nearly a thousand varieties of trees, flowering shrubs and plants. The woodland and shade gardens in particular demonstrate how private landowners can use natural land features to develop stunning landscapes. The garden's perennial borders thrive, the fruit of an extensive soil conservation project. Walking paths, a meandering stream and pond blend gently into the groves and ravines of Redondo's historic upper Cold Creek watershed. A conservatory-style Garden Room offers shelter when the elements threaten.
