Unique plant palettes, precise CAD plans, landscape photo imaging, 3D rendering and web conferencing during the design development phase.
An unused lawn is replaced with a flagstone patio, flagstone stepping stones, low water use plants, gravel and a small vegetable garden.
Small spaces can present an interesting challenge as every square inch must be carefully considered and utilized - the end result being cozy and comfortable, outdoor garden room, living areas.
"We worked with Donna for five years, both as a designer and landscape maintenance consultant and found her to be very talented and service oriented - a pleasure to work with." - Dave, Montecito
CAD Landscape Plans, Virtual 3D Landscape Rendering, Digital Landscape Photo Imaging
Drafted scale drawings of hardscape features (patios, paths, walls, pergolas, etc), water features, plants and lighting, using professional CAD software, result in
precise, easy to read plans. During the *design process, photo imaging or 3D rendering software is used as a design tool to aid in visualizing the proposed finished product. Unique plant
palettes are created for each client based on location, personal taste and unique site conditions.
*Web conferencing is used to conduct online meetings 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.

In order to get started, please submit the form below, answering as many of the questions as possible. From there, we can have a phone conversation to discuss ways in which to proceed in order that you might receive a quote for design work. In addition, I will need photos of the areas you would like to address and a plot plan, site plan or hand drawn sketch with measurements of the house on the lot and location of existing elements (that are to remain in the new design) such as trees, paths, patios, etc.
***If you aren't in possession of a scale drawing, site plan of your property, I recommend that you obtain one from an online site such as: www.mysiteplan.com. I suggest the Medium or preferably, Detailed version. Either one can be obtained for under $200. In order to proceed with an online design, I would need a detailed site plan indicating house on the lot, driveway, existing plants and any other information that would be necessary in order to get started.
