RESIDENTIAL WORK

Our residential work is concentrated in Point Loma, Mission Hills, the neighborhoods surrounding Balboa Park and Banker's Hill.  I encourage clients to plant native while honoring the home, the neighborhood, and the street.  Our swales and dry creek beds mimic nature, we find solutions for erosion that work with our soils.

COMMERCIAL WORK

The majority of our commercial clients are local business owners.  From our work redefining the interior of the OB Noodle House to taking on the design of the Patio Restaurant Groups living walls several years back, we help incorporate plantings in the most challenging situations.  From Living Walls to Metal Planters, we find solutions that add warmth and comfort to public spaces. 

INSTITUTIONAL WORK

Our most notable work is with the Juvenile Justice System in San Diego.  I have lead girls from juvenile hall through a design and build of a place attachment garden located at the San Diego Continuing Office of Education.  Through a 6 month long process, I lead workshops for Master Gardener's, youth, school faculty and probation that sought to connect us all through the garden and to learn from eachother.  I lead the garden program for the boys out at Camp Barrett, educating the boys on California Native Plants and Wildlife. 

We have worked extensively with the Mission Beach Town Council and Belmont Park to introduce Native Plants and a new boardwalk park for the land behind Centennial Rock.
