As a professional Landscaping Company that specializes in Nothwest-style landscaping, we believe in designing and building beautiful, low-maintenance landscapes which mimic nature in a unique and functional way. Once established, these landscapes will be self-sustaining and earth-friendly, conserving water and saving money for our clients.

Another benefit to natural and ecological landscaping is that it reduces your reliance on artificial enhancements like fertilizers and chemicals. It also reduces the need for large volumes of water to keep your landscape green, all of which save you money in the long term.

Our commitment to a natural approach to landscaping is so pivotal to our identity that we’ve incorporated it into our name ONA = Optimal Natural Arrangements. Our earth-friendly natural approach to landscaping is not only beautiful to observers, but it is also good for the planet, conserves water and other natural resources, and creates a low-maintenance landscape that works.


Our landscaping company is special and unique. To maintain a high level of quality for our customers, ONA Landscaping only takes a few select clients each year. This, combined with our dedication to using only top-quality materials and supplies, helps us provide specialized design and build services to each of our clients.

We handle all the details for you, including the securing of any necessary permits, soil analysis, management of contractors and sub-contractors, demolition, site clean-up, and more. Our goal is to make the entire landscaping process as painless as possible for home or business owners from start to finish.

After two years of home renovation, our yard was literally an acre of mud. Not only was the landscaping uninviting, but heavy rains revealed a plethora of drainage problems that threatened our house. ONA Landscaping came to the rescue!
Unlike his competitors, Matt responded immediately to our email inquiry and was at our home within days to access the project. His process from consultation to final walk about was exemplary.
Throughout the job Matt was responsive to our questions, integrated our desires into all design aspects, maintained flexible execution, highlighted issues along the way, and delivered amazing results with high quality. Matt’s knowledge and access to product (local quarry boulders, high end pavers, etc.) make him an exceptional find among landscaping contractors.
ONA’s project manager, Micah, was schedule focused yet detail driven with impeccable follow-through that resulted in a superior outcome. Their highly skilled earthmover, Eli, precisely built massive rock structures with artisan beauty. Matt’s team worked seamlessly in unison to live up to their motto – we agree that “ONA is a name you can trust”. We highly recommend ONA.

ONA has done a lot of work for our Tribe and we think they do great work.  great mixtures of plants, shrubs, trees and great vision of what they look like in 10, 20 & 30 years.  Low maintenance design.

W. Ron Allen

We have a new home with some “landscaping” in front.  After meeting with Matt, we realized that ONA Landscaping was the way to go.  Matt has a great eye for tasteful landscaping.  He really listens to what is important to you, and offers great solutions.  Micah and crew are hard working, knowledgeable, respectful and friendly.  “Phase 1” of our project is now completed, and the front of the house is transformed into a private nature park.  Can’t wait for phase 2 in the back of the house.  ONA runs one crew, one job at a time, but they are worth waiting for, and worth every penny.  It was wonderful working with Matt and team.

Ray Ward

Matt took the vision we had for our landscaping, enhanced it and created a spectacular outdoor space that can only be described as “epic”.  His team was responsive to all our concerns, courteous and moved quickly to complete the project to our satisfaction.  We definitely would recommend ONA Landscaping to anyone looking to make their home/property look spectacular.

Peter Mehl

Truly the best on the Peninsula.

Amazing process to transform our yard into a private outdoor living room. Everything from the first call to the last meeting was performed with professionalism and thorough communication.

Matt, the owner, was a master at providing ideas and design for our fairly large landscaping project.  Everything from the grading, drainage, material selection to project management was perfection.

Then the crew is hard working to transform the vision from paper to reality. The result is a definite upgrade!

Our project included 2 flagstone patios, dry stream bed with snags, large mounded drought tolerant planting areas, drainage, electric, water lines, boulder placement, and more. They were on-site for 3 weeks.

Truly a professional top-notch operation. Highly recommend

We needed to have our lot in a new development landscaped, and I liked the work ONA did on a nearby lot.  Matt initially came out with a giant easel and paper to sketch out and write down a basic plan and ideas.  He listened and was great to work with at each step of the way.  He even worked with the existing plants and trees that I had in containers and incorporated them into the plan.  We included drip irrigation and garden path lighting.  We allowed spaces for some future projects.  The plan was revised several times to meet our budget and other needs, and Matt came up with alternative ideas along the way as well as provided resources for pavers, garden path lighting, garden pots and even patio furniture.  We had a challenging sloped back yard to deal with, and the terraced areas turned out great!  Micah and the other guys were hard workers, very efficient, considerate and cleaned up at the end of each day.  I was amazed watching the project evolve.  The yard turned out better that expected because of Matt’s creativity and expertise and the talents of his crew!

ONA Landscping completed our project in September 2021. I contacted Matt the owner, in the spring as our house was expected to be completed in August or September.  He was great to work with:  very responsive to calls or email, excellent project management and design skills. Micah and the installation team did an excellent  job preparing the site, building fencing, gates and raised vegetable beds, adding to the existing rockery and installing the plants and a water feature.  Matt provided an “as built” plan and directions for care when the project was completed.  We are very happy with the design, installation and the quality of materials used in our project.

I highly recommend ONA Landscaping for any work you need done.  Two yrs ago I called Matt to revamp my front yard. I knew basically what I wanted (curb appeal, low maintenance, year-round color) but couldn’t visualize it.  He listened and ‘got’ what I was asking for, his design and plant choices were great, the end result – beautiful.

It was such a good experience and the work such great quality that when I decided it was time to re-do my backyard, I called Matt. This time I had a good idea of what I wanted and showed him my design.  He took my colored pencil drawing (which was totally out of proportion) and turned it into my dream.  He is calm, knowledgeable, and a joy to work with.

The project involved removing all existing vegetation and obstacles, leveling 2 parts of the yard, transplanting several trees, bushes, and flowers, installing walkways, boulders, raised beds (troughs), and drip irrigation throughout the yard and beds.

I can’t say enough about Micha and the crew. The work they did was stellar, and they even fixed the gate that had been poorly installed by a local fencing company!

They totally transformed a tired, boring yard into an exciting space for people and birds!

Great work!

I highly recommend ONA Landscaping. Matt Ward and his crew are truly exceptional and together created a stunning landscape for my new home.  Matt’s artistry, commitment to client satisfaction and attention to detail in all aspects of the job clearly set ONA apart from landscapers I have worked with in the past.

Elizabeth Donworth

In January 2021 ONA installed two borders of native plants plus a dry creek bed. Matt really listens to what the client wants and has an artistic eye for landscape design. The plants were plentiful enough to fill in nicely even after just one growing season. This is the fourth project ONA has completed for us and as before, it was professional, timely, tidy and beautiful. It is always a pleasure to work with Matt and his team.  And as always, he met his quote and our budget!!

Wendy Meusey

We moved into our new house that had no landscaping at all. We met with Matt and discussed what we wanted in our yard. We wanted a combination of Japanese garden mixed with natural Northwest with an emphasis on food for wildlife. We also needed two patios, one for a hot tub and another for lounging on. Our last request was for some raised planters to do some vegetable gardening in. Boy did we get it all! Matt designed a beautiful yard with bamboo, ferns, natural grasses, huckleberries, trees, and a few pops of flowers.

The crew did a great job! They had to do some land leveling and they built some rock retaining walls. It took about a week of daily work to do it all. They were very considerate of us and cleaned up at the end of each day. They covered our driveway with plywood to protect it from the heavy equipment. They even had a port-a-potty on site for the guys so they didn’t need to come into the house with dirty shoes.

We love sitting on the patio watching and listening to the birds use the fountain for bathing. We have seen deer and raccoons check out our plants too. The nighttime lighting means we can even enjoy the yard after dark.

Matt was a complete pleasure to work with. He responded quickly to emails. He listened to what we wanted and liked and made suggestions for plants to fit our conditions. A complete professional in all ways. If we need more landscaping in the future we’ll be contacting ONA Landscaping again.

Bob Scott

Matt provided beautiful plans, expertly crafted. His crew executed the plans with precision and great skill. It was amazing to watch! Result is a yard-ful of beautiful, hardy, attractive plans that will thrive in a xeriscape environment for many years to come. Matt has also been attentive to any questions or issues after completion of the job.

Ann Harris

A big thank you to ONA’s team!  It was a great experience to watch these guys put our yard together,  just as we had planned it out with Matt.   Dedicated, timely, professional and hard working team.  And when they were finished Matt walked the yard with us and provided us with detailed instructions on  how to care for our plants.

Cherie Stockwell

ONA Landscaping did a great job on our lot…they delivered exactly what I asked for: prepared beds that I could use in my favorite hobby of gardening. They use top-quality materials and are thoroughly professional throughout the process, from initial landscape design to the finished product.

Lynne McCue

We’ve worked with many types of contractors over the years and I have to say, our experience with Matt and his team at ONA Landscaping is genuinely remarkable.  Our work with ONA started 4 months before installation.  In that time and during installation we made multiple changes to the project:  some simple; some not so simple.  While this is not ideal from a contractor’s standpoint, Matt was gracious and professional with all of our requests.

ONA exceeded our expectations with their workmanship, the time in which they completed the project and the quality of the materials used in the installation.

We feel that we paid a fair price for ONA’s work.  We were looking for quality work at a fair price and in our opinion, we received every bit and more of what we paid for.

ONA has one crew – I think that’s a big part of their ability to deliver a quality product.  Be patient:  with their focus on one project at a time, it make take a little longer to get on his schedule, but in our experience, it was well worth the wait.

We heartily recommend Matt Ward and ONA Landscaping and will use them again and again!

Jim Long

Highly recommended! They do cost more—you get the very best. Talk to anyone who has worked with them, you only hear good things. I believe the higher cost reflects the quality of their product and truly livable wages for staff. I enjoyed the entire process from design to finished job. Owner/designer Matt is great. He is honest, open, organized, and I greatly appreciate that he under-promises and then over-delivers rather than the opposite! The install crew -Warren, Eli, Mica, Jubel- worked incredibly hard, were fun to collaborate with, have high standards, great attitudes, great talent, and they enjoy working together!

M whiti

We enjoyed working with Matt and Warren, they helped decide a low maintenance way to go  with a HUGE front yard. their prices were very reasonable. their down to earth ideas were great and we look forward to our new “alternative” lawn to grow in and make the front look beautiful and inviting to the wildlife!

Leslie Hoex

Thank you ONA – our home has been transformed and we love it!

Catherine Hammes

Four years later and still in awe! Continuous compliments from others.
