Biography. Lynn Wolfstone is the principal of Wolfstone Landscape Design in Portland, Oregon.


She takes design inspiration from living in the Pacific Northwest – a part of the world known for its spectacular natural beauty and regional commitment to sustainable practices. Lynn upholds these values, saying, “the garden is ultimately a reflection of the homeowner’s tastes and aspirations. I cater to individual needs, and provide council to help clients reach their goals. I try to be an advocate for responsible stewardship, one beautiful garden at a time.” She incorporates suitable plant life for the Northwest climate, avoids harsh chemicals and considers water, sunlight and organic nutrient demands in every design.

Lynn has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Oregon and a degree in Landscape Design from Portland Community College. Kellie Carlin Landscape Design → Biography.
