Community

Where would we be without Federal, State, and local agency?  In this complicated region, agencies spend our collected, more or less agreed-upon taxes to do what we ask and expect agencies to do.  At all levels.

Local communities also grow and influence change and benefit.  Businesses find their way to smart income while making a difference in their community.

Lets’s take a look at a local business:

Land Ethics LLC 

Land Ethics, LLC. is a landscaping company in Seattle, Washington, aimed at working with nature and the natural features of your property. Our motto is “landscaping with nature” and we mean it, our company was founded by Matthew Kuhar, a Certified Master Pruner, naturalist, artist and professional landscaper who practices land ethics to landscape with nature in mind, and to maintain health of natural ecosystems by restoring and creating complex environments.

The use of hand tools reduces noise pollution and exhaust fumes alike, and we only use organic products for safe stream runoff for both aquatic and human health.

Dunn Gardens

In 1914, Arthur Dunn purchased 10 acres of undeveloped rural land in what is now the Broadview neighborhood of Seattle. The gently sloping property was extensively wooded, had ample open space for garden development, and commanded sweeping views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains to the west. In May 1915, Arthur Dunn approached the Olmsted Brothers, the renowned landscape design firm of Brookline, Massachusetts, to locate a cottage and prepare a landscape plan for what would become the Dunn family’s summer “country place.”
