Welcome!

I am an experienced landscape designer specializing in beautiful, drought-tolerant landscape designs that look great all year. My designs use little water, are low-maintenance, and do well in poor soil. I use plants from around the world; including California natives, Mediterranean plants, and plants from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and South America.

I am passionate about plants and gardening, and like to impart my enthusiasm to my clients. My interactions with my clients tend to be educational and enjoyable as I explain why I use certain plants and not others in their landscapes. I try to listen closely to the needs and desires of my clients so that I can tailor the designs to their requirements. Each landscape design is individual and is personally designed for a particular setting. I take into account the style and colors of the house, existing plantings, the contours of the land, and any views that need to be enhanced or hidden.
