Landscape Design
Landscape Design Connecting to a sense of place with natural materials and great plants to create meaningful private spaces.

  • Sensible Planting Strategies and Management Practices:
    “Right plant in the right place” plant selection; consider the “gardenworthiness” of each plant.
  • Design with maintenance in mind: consider existing soils and exposure and work as much as possible with what you already have. This approach is much easier and also reduces water and energy inputs.
  • Above all, please don’t plant invasive species that require huge inputs of resources to control.

The California Invasive Plant Council (Cal-IPC) has an excellent website promoting responsible landscaping.
