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.

Watching A Garden Grow


Three years ago, this was a dry lawn in Echo Park.
I came by recently to see how the plantings were doing after almost 3 years in the ground, and found a riot of forms and color. It's a wonderful space to walk into, and gives so much privacy and lushness, but without too much care or water, and without completely blocking out the neighborhood. It still feels welcoming, but private.


The transformation since newly planted to a few years later, when the plants have grown in, is pretty dramatic! See next three photos for BEFORE, JUST PLANTED vs. GROWN IN:
