From cool shade gardens to dry stream beds lined with ornamental grasses, we try to capture a special feeling in our landscape garden design by inviting hummingbirds, integrating fragrance and color, and varying textures, heights and bloom seasons of plantings.

Plant selection is more than selecting individual plants – the key is selecting plant combinations for contrast and interest in a garden. Many clients request lots of color, but want low maintenance. One of our planting techniques is to use color in the foliage, along with other shrubs that bloom once a year. By minimizing the use of perennials, and associated deadheading, we keep the maintenance to a minimum.
Although we love shade gardens and Asian style gardens, we also build Mediterranean gardens, perennial gardens, native plant gardens, and use a variety of ground covers. We certainly install sod lawns, although we encourage minimizing lawns…less grass means less water, less maintenance, less money – less is more!
In certain hillside applications erosion control is appropriate and plants with invasive root systems bind the soil and help control slippage.
