Waterwise Transformation

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

After Installation

Designing for Small Spaces

"We have worked with Donna, both as a designer and landscape maintenance consultant and find her to be very talented and service oriented - a pleasure to work with." - Dave, Montecito

I offer a range of services from design concept to facilitation of the installation as well as continued support in landscape maintenance once the design has been implemented.

Areas of Focus

Landscape Plans

Drafted scale drawings of hardscape features (patios, paths, walls, pergolas, etc), plants and lighting, using professional CAD software, resulting in precise, easy to read plans. During the design process, photo imaging or 3D software is available as a design tool to aid in visualizing the proposed finished product. Unique plant palettes are created for each client based on personal taste and unique site conditions.
*Web conferencing is available during the design development process. Clients are invited to view my computer desktop where I am able to display plant palette photos, site photos, the CAD plan, imaging photos or 3D renderings. In addition, we are able to visit websites pertinent to the plants or materials used in the design.


Hourly On-Site Consultation - available to local Santa Barbara area residents

Need a few ideas?

Most often, I prefer to think through all the variables and details via a scale drawing but in instances where there is existing landscape in need of slight modification, working on-site can be a possibility.


Garden Room Design

Taking landscape design a step further and creating personalized, outdoor living areas with garden accents, pots, furniture, ornaments and color. My garden room design services consist of hourly on-site or online consultation that can include the use of landscape photo imaging or 3D software.
