the designers & process
All of our designers are Certified Horticulturists with the latest training in design and plant materials. One of our priorities is meeting the requirements of creating Low Water Gardens, such as using the WUCOLS tool to direct our plant material choices. The style of the home is taken into consideration when selecting plants and materials. Listed below are just a few examples of types of gardens we design:
California Native Gardens
Zen & Peaceful Gardens
Family Oriented Gardens
Traditional and Historical Styles
… and of course! English Gardens
