FULL HOUSE FOR CAREER DAY. Thanks to the 8th graders from Bridger Elementary School who stopped by WatershedPDX to see the space. They had the chance to talk with several artists and other small business owners. It was a pleasure to meet them all and share my story with them.

I worked with Leigh and Dan to build this trellis for their climbing roses. The landscape was just completed by Rachel’s Landscape Design. In it was a semi-circular bench which needed just the right trellis to create a cozy private space to partially block a view from the street. They requested a modern look with a golden ratio theme. This was accomplished by making the numerical pattern horizontal, in alternating sections. It’s Fibonacci’s sequence (1,1, 2, 3, 5, 8,13 and 21) on a half inch scale.The trellis sits 10′ W x 6.5′ H x 32″ D
Client Review: “Shelly created a beautiful trellis for our front yard that acts as a screen but is really an all season focal point. The trellis provides privacy from the street and support for my favorite climbing rose. Shelly spent time with us in the yard to really understand the site and our needs, and she collaborated with us through sketches and photos to come up with this fabulous modern work of art. She also helped us install the finished product. People walking on our street stop and comment frequently! Thank you, Shelly, for this wonderful addition to our landscape.
To give you some perspective these flowers are in a pot 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. They give the space some color while the pot holds back the soil in a planted bed. A high shelf inside holds a layer of stones. This was a fun project for Tom and Debbie! Thank you.
