Fairy Yardmother Landscape Design

by Kathy Oberg, Landscape Designer, Los Angeles, CA.

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.

Flax and Fescue

This combination really struck me. I see these plants all the time, but I don't think I've ever seen this particular Phormium mixed with Fescue in such a dramatic yet simple planting. The way the gray-greens play together is wonderful, and the contrast in texture makes the Phormium feel so soft.
The scale of the planting is large for a rather small front yard, but I think it works. It's striking, but it's not for everyone. The little Agave on the left is also nice in the composition, but it may take over the space when it grows up!
