Fairy Yardmother Landscape Design

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.

California Poppy Time


As I've said in other posts, I really enjoy things that only happen once a year. It's nice to see a flower, and say, "It's been a year since I've seen one of those." 
It creates a cohesiveness for me, a relationship with time that is not dependent on shows I want to watch or places I need to be. I like connecting with the bigger picture.
California poppies are so lovely. Decided to have a little fun with a poppy portrait.

  1. I saw a bud today, if the dog didn't break it off we should have a flower tomorrow. They seem to like my climate and sandy soil.
