What is Unique?

Bethany Rydmark :: Landscapes

At Bethany Rydmark :: Landscapes, we design from deep roots, follow our wonder, guide with honesty, and craft from care. We meld classical training with evolving design. We’ve grown up on farms and in gardens; we’re from the PNW and have traveled the world; we’re artists and makers; we practice what we preach and find joy in the cultivation of thoughtful, resilient gardens.
Specialty
We are licensed landscape architects and garden designers with deep histories in the Pacific Northwest. We artfully shape the natural world, knitting humanity into place and supporting relationships growing from the land. This looks like… …slowing down to understand how we got here. …asking questions to learn our client’s story. …paying attention to the land and the ways it’s been shaped. …considering the before—before deciding what comes next. …pausing to wonder. …taking time to seek out answers or information about new ideas or materials or possibilities. … choosing real and lasting over cheap and easy. …envisioning artful solutions from the beginning. …identifying those impacted by our work and how we nourish their existence through design.

Inspiring Beautiful Gardens, The Role of Nature in Supporting Human Health, Soil Health, Supporting Biodiversity
What's the best gardening advice you ever received?
Patience, patience. (And be excited while you wait.)
Where do you find Inspiration?
We look to our roots and our surroundings: the soils of the PNW forests and fields, the plant communities of the coasts and mountains and valleys, the materials at hand that will patina with time and tell the story of the natural world.
What is something surprising about your history?
Bethany Rydmark, studio founder, grew up a renegade homeschool girl on a farm in the Willamette Valley. She drove combine in the summers and worked to earn her own money to purchase a subscription to the brand new “Garden Gate” magazine when she was 13 years old. She wrote letters to the editor and carried on correspondence about garden design and plants. A year later, the editor departed to head ASLA’s Landscape Architecture Magazine, and Bethany sat down at the family computer and—during the inaugural year of Google’s search engine—typed in “landscape architecture”, and found course descriptions for a degree she never knew existed. She fell head over heels and the rest is history.
What are you most proud of?
We are most proud of the trust we build with our clients. Design is personal, and people helping people is sacred work.
