pair plants with people and place to create successful gardens

Full Service Design, Installation & Maintenance

Our design process begins by engaging imagination to create cohesive garden programs that incorporate hard-scape and plant programs creatively and seamlessly.  With our talented team, we manage the process from concept to installation and offer full-service maintenance for our gardens.

Through many years living in and interacting with spaces in San Francisco and the surrounding areas, we understand the many micro-climates that surround us and what that means in terms of making informed plant choices.

Our garden designs do not skimp on character.  We specialize in working with rare and unique plant selections not commonly found in typical garden settings.

Sustainability

As California faces one of the most severe droughts in recent history, we adhere to sustainable practices by making water-wise plant choices.  We work with some of the best and most technologically advanced grey-water system installation specialists in the Bay Area.  

Design Consultation Services 

We pride ourselves on creating unique, custom solutions to bring visions to fruition, whether it be through full service design or on a consultation basis.  Consultation services range from site mapping layout and plant selections to a site meeting and list of ideas.

Maintenance

A steady maintenance schedule is essential to the ongoing vitality of a successful garden. Our team offers ongoing maintenance for all of our projects, both interior and exterior. 


Interiors

Bring the outdoors in

We offer services for small business and individuals to prepare plant programs for interior spaces.  Working closely with architects and interior designers, we explore ways to compliment their decor with a sustainable selection of plants that bring life to any space.
