Bayhill Gardens is committed sustainable practices. Water conservation is especially important in the islands because we share a limited aquifer. All the gardens were designed with water conservation in mind, including moisture-retentive soils, careful mulching, and the most advanced technologies. An AdvanTex grey and wastewater system purifies water from the homes to irrigate the grounds. Additional irrigation water comes from rainwater catchment from four ponds permitted by the Washington State Department of Ecology. A Netafim drip irrigation system, designed for desert use, waters the garden. Solar panels under the slate roof in the pool house heat the water in the pool and provide energy for the floor heating system. All cleaning supplies used on the premises are botanical, non-toxic products in order to protect the soil and water systems.
Bayhill Gardens is located near the end of Richardson Road, just inland of Jones Bay and Mackaye Harbor. The property offers exceptional privacy with the gardens, South House, and pool house fully enclosed. The village is a 15 minute drive, as is Southend Market, with the ferry landing approximately 25 minutes away from the property by car.
