About Spirit Garden Design

Lucinda O’Halloran and the designers at Spirit Garden Design have been serving the Greater Seattle Area for over 18 years.  We design beautiful landscapes  that are sustainable and low maintenance.  We educate and empower our clients with methods that make a positive difference in their gardens, their community and the planet as a whole.


Sustainability is a major consideration of each design in which we meld the dreams and visions of our clients with the needs of the land to create a partnership that promotes harmony throughout the seasons. It is this partnership that allows us to connect with the ‘spirit of place’ and, in doing so, brings us into harmony with the planet. We recognize and value a harmonious environment and bring that harmony to each of our designs.
