PowellsWood Garden bounces back from the 2012 ice storm

What do you do if a big ice storm takes out your maple, native cherry, white fir and apple trees? You completely replant with a bed of tropical-hued bananas, dracenas and grasses, and mulch like crazy. That’s what Monte Powell has been doing for the last 30 days at PowellsWood, the 3-acre public garden that he and his wife, Diane, created almost 20 years ago in Federal Way on a former dumping ground. And the spectacular results of the garden’s recent makeover will be on show throughout the summer starting June 22.
