"Robin is a great communicator and is excellent to work with. She not only possesses excellent plant knowledge, but her recommendations for containers have been spot on. The landscaping is gorgeous, all the plants, trees and shrubs are thriving and perfectly situated. I am now able to entertain and enjoy this space every day. I highly recommend Robin!"

Whether it is an outdoor oasis, a place to entertain friends or a backyard retreat, your home will be a place that brings you enjoyment and inspiration. My goal is to create a space within your budget that you will enjoy for years to come.
Be it a low maintenance garden, an entertainment space or a complete renovation, your vision is my priority. I approach design by listening to your goals and dreams.
From our first meeting, I'll learn more about you and your project goals. I will schedule an on-site consultation to learn about your garden, your style and any special considerations on your property. After this meeting, you will receive a proposal outlining the scope of the design and deliverables. Once I receive a deposit, I will schedule your project and return for a site analysis and measurements.
Then, I will begin the design process and create a plan and visuals for your review. This will include plan views as well as material choices and a general planting palette to discuss. The next phase will be a final design including a detailed planting plan, plant list and sizes, quantities and materials selected.
Landscape design and project management go hand in hand together to insure the finished design is installed in the way it was intended. When you are ready to begin your project, I can support you through each step, from the bid process to the installation of the landscape design. I work with several contractors who offer excellent customer service, do quality work, and have solid reputations and references. Having me work directly on your project insures the end result will meet your wishes.
Whether designing decks, outdoor dining spaces, pergolas, or water features, I carefully consider your lifestyle, the architectural flavor of your home and long term care of the property while considering your budget/phasing to reach a successful outcome.
Bringing your goals to fruition, I listen closely to your vision to thoughtfully prepare your design plan.
Container Plantings & Seasonal Color
Beautiful custom containers can be a great addition to your outdoor space. They add character and warmth and are an easy solution to refreshing your entry and entertainment spaces. Even viewed from indoors, they add spark and visual appeal to your landscape. Tying them together with your style and color scheme can unify your home, in turn, creating an attractive focal point that makes your home feel complete.
