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.


A garden is the best alternative therapy. --Germaine Greer

There is nothing that makes its way more directly to the soul than beauty. --Joseph Addison

Helping people enjoy Nature in their own backyard is satisfying work. I believe gardens can be therapeutic, and I love helping people connect to the outdoors.

In my Landscape Design business, I strive to be environmentally conscious. I buy recycled paper and drive a fuel-efficient car. Within the confines of the client's needs and desires, I choose plants that need less water, less fertilizer, and less pruning. I try to reuse existing plants and trees. I suggest permeable paving choices.

I love to blog about gardens, ideas and design. I enjoy sharing information about plants and gardening, and posting pictures of gardens I see around town. Examining the landscapes around me is inspiring and helps me stay up to date with trends and creative solutions. Though lately I find myself with less time to craft these posts and keep up with the Blog section of this site, I continue adding occasional updates on my own projects. Most of the photographs in the blog are mine. If I include photos from an outside source to illustrate a point, when none of my own photos will do, I always acknowledge the source.

Thank you for visiting my site!
