Ask me about creating a California native plant palette suited to the area you live in.

Waterwise Transformation

Before Design

An unused lawn is replaced with a flagstone patio, flastone stepping stones, low water use plants, gravel and a small vegetable garden.

After Installation

Montecito Country

Geranium maderense

The 3 1/2 acre property surrounding a New England style home was transformed into a series of country gardens with traditional as well as Mediterranean elements. 


Mediterranean Container Planting

When designing a planting plan, I usually start with a plant palette based on area of origin that can be modified and added to. The result is a unique combination of plants that work together, both visually and culturally. (see the Plant Page for more information on plant palettes)

Welcoming Entryways

Goleta Valley Beautiful Award

Japanese garden design places importance on the threshold - a place or point of entering. Creating "welcoming entryways" that indicate the transition from outer world to inner or one area of the landscape to another is something that I like to consider when designing a landscape.

Garden Rooms, Nooks, Niches and Lookouts

Pergola Garden Room

Creating attractive areas within the landscape for specific purposes, that can then be personalized with fountains, pots, furniture, garden art and accents.
