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.

Vertical Planting: Industrial

I love bringing diverse elements into the garden and integrating them. Here is a fab idea from Designer Emanuel Donval, featured in Stephen Orr's new book, Tomorrow's Garden.


Donval's Metal Roof Jacks

A good example of seeing the potential of a common object to serve us in a new way. 
I really like the way the metal rectangles overlap. The interaction of the shapes and lines, and the way the light plays off the surfaces, reminds me of modern painting.
