In 2003, Lauren Hall-Behrens founded Lilyvilla Gardens. Located in Portland, Oregon, Lilyvilla Gardens is a garden and landscape design studio specializing in connecting person to place; creating meaningful spaces in the nature that surrounds your home. Signatures of Lilyvilla Gardens are unique transitions of space within the garden, modern use of hardscape materials ranging from mild steel to re-purposed fir, custom furniture and structures as well as bold yet simple plant combinations that are lower-maintenance and water-wise. We begin the design process by actively listening to our clients, assessing the garden site and developing an overall concept, an idea or mental picture, which becomes the essence of the design. This conceptual model drives the design which is then transformed into a custom garden that reflects your personality, lifestyle and fits the context of your home and its natural surroundings.
