Welcome to Edgewood Garden

Edgewood Garden is a large estate garden created on 32 acres in Edgewood, Washington by Ilga Jansons and Michael Dryfoos. They started out in 2004 with a property covered mainly in lawn and blackberry bushes, and centered on a large Northwest Contemporary style house built in 1981 with a stunning view of Mt. Rainier. Since then they have created a garden grand in scale yet intimate in experience, featuring various garden rooms or themes, from bird-filled woods to more formal rose gardens to contemplative Asian settings.  Now coming into maturity after several years of development, Edgewood Garden is rare in scale and ambition, and in the hands-on attitude of the owners.
