Available for Consultations:
We look over your landscape and give you feedback and ideas, help you problem solve and come up with a theme for your garden space. If you hire me to design your landscape the "Consultation Fee" will be subtracted from the total proposal.

When I meet with my clients to manifest their customized outdoor living space, I begin by interviewing them. It is important for me to incorporate their visions, practical needs and garden preferences. We begin by exploring these elements:


Intended use of the garden space
Home Architecture
Themes – Mediterranean, Tropical, Formal, English, Japanese, and
California drought tolerant
Color palette

I take their ideas and translate it down on a two-dimensional format.There are three Phases of the Design process:

Schematic Plan View and Elevation Views Phase (i.e. preliminary)
Design Development Phase
Research & On-Site Design Phase

A well-designed garden is food for the eyes; it can evoke a childhood memory or stimulate a more recent impression of a distant landscape once visited.

My fine art and design background has influenced my landscape designs. And with my passion to create "Living Sculpture", I choreograph rhythmical gardens with textural differences, complimentary colors, and a variety of fragrance.
