Benefits of Native Plants
  • Native plants are adapted to the California water cycle (dry summers and wet winters)

  • Native plants provide a connection to animal habitats and local ecology

  • Native plants aesthetically belong together and describe the place we are

Garden Design Strategy

Evergreen shrubs and groundcovers (manzanita, ceanothus, rhamnus) create a garden’s structure.  Foundational plants serve as foil for ribbons or pockets of seasonal color (epilobium, achillea, eriogonum).  Grasses add movement and texture to the garden.  I strive to select a variety of plant forms, textures, foliage, and flower color to create year-long interest.
