Ecologically-Oriented Landscape Design

My goal is to design creative, beautiful landscape spaces that are also ecologically oriented and functional.


Planting is focused on waterwise California Native plants that provide wildlife habitat as well as fruit trees, herbs and vegetable gardens.


Garden elements might include pervious paving, modular pavingstones or brick, natural stonework, re-used materials and recycled products.
