We are passionate about designing with plants! The benefit they provide to biodiversity enhancement and the emotional connection to the wild they trigger in us all. We are currently volunteering many hours to the Potrero Eco-Patch, a community-led demonstration garden, where we have developed a series of plant lists and planting designs for testing. See here for more information on our design process.
In addition to typical landscape architecture services, we also offer a planting consultant service and can supply everything from tailored planting lists to schematic planting to full construction documentation planting plans for a given project.
