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.

Container Plantings -- Descanso Gardens

Descanso Gardens is a large, beautiful garden about 20 minutes North of Downtown Los Angeles. Here are some of the many lovely container plantings in the front courtyard at the entrance of the Gardens. Wonderful combinations, colors and textures. This is my first post about the gardens, more to come!

I like the Box for Herbs
