Landscape Design


Celilo Gardens is a landscape design studio in Portland Oregon. We bring over 30 years of design experience and 25 years of plantsmanship to the landscaped environment. We integrate water wise strategies, alternatives to chemical use and vertical gardening into the smallest of spaces. We incorporate edible landscapes wherever possible because we believe this is a sustainable measure well worth the effort — this is not a trend but a lifestyle change. We pride ourselves on choosing the right plant for the right spot…the first time. And, we are nice.

We look forward to working with you.

** Celilo = “the echo of falling water”, in reference to waterfalls and cascades, native American in origin.
