PNW Trip 8 Day Itinerary

I'm taking my first trip to the Pacific Northwest! Most of the itineraries I've seen are for a 9-10 day trip, but we only have 8 days, counting departure day. Trying to make the most of our time without cramming in too much. What are your must-sees for 8 days? We are likely sticking to Oregon & Washington, and want to see a mix of cities and coastline.

Is this even a thing, landscaping edition

Having purchased a house on a sizable plot of land (0.6 acres), we find ourselves in a pickle -- we'd like to fix up the yard, currently best described as "woefully neglected", but we'd like to do the work ourselves. The problem being, while we have a good idea of what we want, we don't know how to do it. We want some sort of mentor, somebody to review ideas, tell us broadly how to go about doing the work, give us feedback after we're done, and so forth. [more inside]

We want to drive from Contra Costa County, CA, to Anglicon 2015 in Seattle.

Large decorative plants that will survive in a container on a Seattle deck

What plants are suitable for putting on our deck in Seattle? There's no yard/soil, so they must live in containers. The deck is quite large so I was thinking about large decorative plants like small trees or some form of bamboo. Climate-wise, we have the typical PNW weather of moist winters that only fall below freezing a few days out of the year. Also, we are completely ignorant of gardening and would rather have something that can survive with a minimum of attention.
