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.


"I just got home from work and walking into our new oasis for the first time was really indescribable. I am beyond happy with how everything turned out. Even the smell was amazing! You have been such a gem to work with and I am so grateful to have found you."
K, Eagle Rock

"Kathy gave us the ability to see our vision come to life. She understood our concerns and limitations and was very sensitive to them as she helped us create our 'New Orleans-style' courtyard. We could not be more thrilled with the outcome!"
Toni, Sherman Oaks

"Kathy has a lovely sense of design and proportion. My garden, the bees, and hummingbirds are much better since I met Kathy."
Manon, Mar Vista
