Thank you for visiting my site. I enjoy bringing you pictures of gardens, plants, and ideas from sunny Southern California. I love sharing after-photos that show how my landscape plans, plant lists and layouts come to life.
As a designer, I use plants to create drama, provide color and form, and compliment the architectural style of your home.
I strive to provide a buffer from sun, street, and neighbors while still fostering connections.
Inspired plant choices and site layout can make any space a success.
I am a Certified Watershed Wise Professional, with techniques to improve soil health and keep more water on your property.
I can help you makeover your patio, paths, planting areas, or entire property. I will consult with you, choose a look you love, and compose a plan and plant list to update your landscape, re-using what you already have wherever we can.
Each project is different because it is about making your space really shine.

Table DIY

I had a couple of these steel tables from the 1950's or 60's, but the veneer on their tops was stained and ugly. I really wanted a cheap fix for now.



$2.00 worth of ConTact paper and 10 minutes of work later, and the tables look much better! This is one time where the cheap and easy fix worked well enough! I'll get to a more permanent solution eventually, but I've learned that I would rather find a reasonably good solution, and enjoy something, instead of having it in storage for years while I wait to get the time and money necessary to do my dream restoration! Sometimes there is no easy solution, and you just have to wait, but not this time!
