    July 15, 2019 /
    Pickett Street Properties Team /

    Doesn’t reading a good thriller in a hammock or enjoying corn salad while sipping one of these cool local drinks on the patio sound amazing?  I recently visited my parents in Gig Harbor and delighted in my stepdad’s gorgeous garden in full bloom, with its shady paths and sprawling flowers and herbs. Since then, I’ve had outdoor living spaces on my mind. If you, too, are curious about cultivating outdoor spaces, here are a few summer gardening trends for 2019. 1. Native, ecologically-friendly gardens The University of Washington Press recently released the third edition of Arthur R. Kruckeberg and Linda Chalker-Scott’s Gardening with Native Plants of the Northwest. The book acts as a guide to the Pacific Northwest’s lush landscapes and native flora; readers will find information about nearly 1,000 trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, and grasses.  According to the Seattle Times book review, “Regardless of where you stand on the native/non-native continuum, I think we all can agree that cultivating resilient biodiverse landscapes that support pollinators, wildlife and human habitat is a good thing.”  Country Living UK agrees that planting gardens that thrive in your area’s climate conditions is key. Designer Sue Townsend advises people “to plant the right plants…Read more

  • Investing in Vacant Land

    July 8, 2019 /

    A few months ago, I chatted with a friend about whether she ever planned to move on from renting to buying her own home.  “What I really want,” she confessed, “is to buy some land outside of the city and build a treehouse on it.” (If you’re curious about what the heck a treehouse residence is, check out these stunning examples from around the world.) Luckily for my friend and for many others who think out of the box, investing in real estate can take many different forms. If purchasing a standard previously constructed house is not for you, consider purchasing a duplex, a condo, a residential or commercial building, a farm, or even vacant land. First, as always, call or email Pickett Street at to talk about your real estate options. The team can walk you through all the options. Then, take a look at the list below of pros and cons for purchasing vacant land. Pros: 1. Owning vacant land as a long-term investment can be more affordable than owning a home. Property taxes and fees are often lower for vacant land than for developed land. Purchasing vacant land is also cheaper up front. Most vacant lots in…Read more

    Pickett Street Properties is dedicated to serving the community and is highlighting businesses and community members that are dedicated to doing the same. In this highlight we are excited to share about the Watershed Pub & Kitchen in Northgate, WA. Here is their story: Owner Ben Curran spent over a decade at the Fiddler's Inn in Wedgwood as a bartender, cook and manager, where he developed a passion for craft beer and community while working for Bob Brenlin, who remains a great friend and mentor to Ben and the Watershed Pub family. When Ben and his now wife and Co-Owner Kelsey were starting to talk about marriage they also started talking more seriously about the idea of opening a pub. After one of Ben's regulars at the Fiddler's Inn urged him toward Thornton Place as a potential location, followed by many months of planning and negotiations along with Ben's parents Liz and Craig, the dream solidified and Watershed Pub & Kitchen became a reality.   The Watershed Pub & Kitchen is a family owned, community founded neighborhood pub centered abound craft beer, cider, wine and spirits, wholesome, scratch-made comfort food and genuine hospitality and community.
