As a Cal Poly graduate in Ornamental Horticulture (1975) I have chosen to focus my talents on LANDSCAPE DESIGN. I have been working in this field for 35 years. I enjoy creating beautiful outdoor living environments for my clients!
My designs combine what the homeowner would like to have with what is functional for their site. I have created hundreds of gardens in a variety of styles!
My goal as a designer is to provide a landscape plan that is practical, easy to care for and lovely to look at. This might include: patios, decks, fences, retaining walls, paths, dog runs, play areas, lawns, lighting, water features, fire pits and planting beds.
At the initial client meeting (about 1 hour) there is no fee. This interview is an important introduction for both parties. I will show my portfolio and sample plans. If hired, I will sketch and measure your property to begin the drawing. Upon final approval, blueprints are provided along with an informative notebook containing photos of all plants used with care information.
"To have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden...
Go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden"
I wanted to convey our delight with the plans for our backyard landscape project that you delivered yesterday. Tom and I are so thrilled with the concept, layout and detail you provided!
It was an absolute pleasure working with you. I sincerely appreciate the way you listened to our likes and preferences and the way you worked to understand our unique "microclimate" needs.
When we have a completed canvas, I will be sure to let you know. Please feel free to use us as a reference in your business. We would not hesitate to give you a great recommendation.
