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.

Catmint: Nepeta "Walker's Low"


I love this little herbaceous ground cover, Nepeta faassenii. It has pretty, aromatic, gray-green leaves and blue flowers. It does not necessarily stay low, but can grow to 2 feet high. Sheer to keep lower.
If you plant from 4" pots in Spring, it will take off very quickly. Plant about 2 feet apart. It looks as at home in a semi-dry mediterranean garden as it does around roses.
