The Urban Arboretum
The Urban Arboretum, maintained by Amazon Horticulture, provides Amazonians and community members a connection to nature in the center of Seattle's urban core. As you walk through Amazon's Puget Sound headquarters, we invite you to experience this urban botanical garden, which reflects the diverse plant palette represented within The Spheres.

Bioretention planters

Bio-retention planters can help diversify habitat and planting opportunities, while also treating urban storm water before it enters local bodies of water. These planters become a seamless part of our urban infrastructure, protecting habitats for threatened species such as salmon and orcas.
