ABOUT TELLURIAN GARDENS
Hi, I’m Scott Schultze and I started Tellurian Gardens back in 2009. I grew up in the Midwest and earned a degree in Horticulture with an emphasis in Landscape Design from the University of Nebraska in 2005.
Along with over 13 years experience as a professional landscaper, I have also worked in construction and farm settings my entire life. The number one thing I’ve learned along the way is that landscaping is about making a connection between people and place.
It’s about helping clients create the outdoor space they’ve always dreamed about.
Our landscapes are not just putting a wall here or a patio there. It’s about creating spaces that have function and form. Our work is built around understanding why we put a wall there and a patio here. This philosophy is the backbone of creating a usable landscape that you’ll love.
Landscape truly is the connection between people and place.

PORTLAND LANDSCAPING FAQ
“Can you landscape a small yard?”
Many of our favorite projects have taken place in the small lots found in NE and SE Portland. Smaller spaces make landscaping and design projects more challenging, but that’s what we love. We can work magic on any size yard, large or small.
“Do outdoor kitchens ‘work’ in Portland?”
Many people think Portland’s rainy climate makes outdoor living spaces and outdoor kitchens more hassle than they’re worth. Nothing could be further from the truth. With a covered outdoor space and the right custom features (outdoor heating, for example) you can enjoy a kitchen, patio, or other outdoor space in all but the very worst weather.
“What is ‘hardscaping’? Is it the same as ‘landscaping’?”
If you’ve been researching Portland landscaping projects, you might have run across the word “hardscaping.” The use of stones, rocks, and other “hard” objects is known as “hardscaping”. Conversely, “softscaping” is used to describe the use of grass, shrubs, flowers, plants, and even gardens. “Hardscaping” and “softscaping” are just different parts of “landscaping”– not something completely different.
“What’s a good budget for landscaping a yard in Portland?”
To be honest, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Similar projects in two different yards might have surprisingly different costs, depending on a variety of factors. If you have questions about cost, contact us and tell us more about your yard and what you have in mind. With that information, we can provide a ballpark cost of your project before we visit your property. That helps us get on the same page early in the process.
“Is Portland landscaping more difficult than in other areas?”
Yes and no. Portland’s distinct seasons (and our often long rainy winter) means that landscapers must remember to protect against water damage and erosion. This may be as simple as putting bio bags to collect runoff in the street or installing complex drains to handle large storm events below patios and decks. Or it might mean using local plants that are hardy and can thrive year round. There’s lots to think about when landscaping in Portland. Just ask if you have questions.
