Our Story

Our Story

We started in Seattle in 1994 with a loyal list of yard maintenance clients and determination to do things immaculately. Too young for a driver license, custom made bikes and trailers were the mode of transportation.

As the company grew and talent joined we expanded into landscape construction and technical excavation. Our first employee hires from outside the family are still with us – testimony to the way Terrain wants to care for each other and keep a fun tight-knit atmosphere. That reflects in the caring personable team members that you will engage with. We believe with success come responsibility and to that end, we spend a lot of time on charity projects and supporting other charities that are close to our hearts.

Our strengths lie in luxury residential sites that require a high level of crew conscientious. Many of our clients are well known local celebrities and business leaders. Sites that require a high level of security and confidentiality. We are often asked to complete projects for them on their other homes around the world.

Now fully engaged in Landscape design and construction we distinguish ourselves with the belief that we must think globally, to that end we travel the world extensively. Bringing back new products and ideas and networking with landscape industry leaders. We refuse to be parochial staying ahead of the trends and bringing our clients the best the world has to offer.
