“We could not be happier!”
“Laura helped us complete our dream of having a functional, fun, gorgeous backyard! She did a great job working with our vision and shaping the yard into a useful space for all ages to enjoy. I would highly recommend her – she helps guide you through the journey, she understands the landscape and the weather, she helps pick the plants and even gives guidance on how to care for your new yard...we could not be happier!!” – Ale L, San Francisco, CA
“Laura’s advice is invaluable!”
“We converted our front yard to a drought tolerant greenscape. Laura provided alternatives: design ideas and various plants that thrive in our area with relatively little maintenance. It was a pleasure to work with her, and we are excited with the result! Her plantings all look very healthy, and I can't wait to see them mature. Laura has an excellent design sense and great local experience that extends to the installation process. Her advice is invaluable” – Judy L, Moraga, CA
We believe in the potential of your yard
Where some see an empty uninspiring space, we see a blank canvas and an exciting opportunity for a transformation. We believe in working with nature – so instead of suggesting a design that doesn’t quite fit your unique space and the environment of your garden, we’ll come up with a personalized design that truly elevates your yard. It’s our job to create outdoor spaces that you’ll enjoy to their fullest potential. We’re not just passionate about it. We’re great at it.
You deserve to have a garden you’re proud of
Whether you’re itching to host BBQs for friends, give your kids space to play in, start growing your own vegetables, or simply have a space to relax in the sun after a hard day’s work, your garden should be all you’ve ever wanted from an outdoor space (and more).
Let us take the reins and get to work – it’s time you started enjoying your garden.
“Laura made a ho-hum backyard come alive”
“My backyard is amazing and it is endlessly fascinating to me! One of the best early decisions I made was calling Laura. She measured, took pictures, studied the sun and shade patterns and came up with a great design for my backyard. It has more hardscape, lots of seating in various locations, raised beds, and interesting and colorful plantings. As I told her, it is like a nature preserve... butterflies, birds, and bees all know there is a new, pretty garden in town. I highly recommend Laura to make a ho-hum backyard come alive to a truly functional space!” – Kevin S, Berkeley, CA
“We love our new backyard – it's unique, modern, and comfortable”
“Laura is fantastic to work with. She was very attentive to our requests, worked very hard to provide a number of options, and is a great counselor in resolving differences of design preference in creative ways. We love our new back yard - it's unique, modern, and comfortable. One of the things we love about Laura's service is the monthly "to-do" that she provides - as someone with a black thumb and zero knowledge on how to take care of plants, this is critical in keeping our back yard alive and beautiful. Laura is easy to work with, responsive, and creative. When we get around to designing our front yard, she'll be our first phone call!” – Esther M, Orinda, CA
