Landscape Design, Austin

If you’re looking for a residential landscape designer to provide you with a scaled drawing and an education on how to care for your landscape, you are in the right place.I am and have been a landscape designer and educational consultant in the Austin and surrounding area for over 20 years.
As a Master Gardener and native plant specialist, I work with water conservationist in mind. I am in love with what I do and am proud to have been organic before it was cool. I only use plants that are native or adapted to our area. I am forward thinking about conservation, sustainable materials and creative solutions to spaces small and large. I consider myself an artist as well as a gardener and I pride myself on low water, low maintenance gardens. Here are some examples of my work.

Low Water/Xeriscape


Xeriscape means low water plants, not just rock and cactus.

I create clever solutions for every challenge, and a style to fit every budget.

My goal is to design a space that speaks to you in the lifestyle you want to live. Let me help you visualize your ideas into a low maintenance, low water landscape.

This is what a native and adapted plant palate looks like. This is my version of Xeriscape. You can choose to have a few plants with space between them, or a rainforest. Creating unique landscapes is my specialty.

Hand drawn designs are built to scale with a plant list and instruction. Here is more information on Design and Consultation pricing.
