Our expertise is long-term garden maintenance, all the while incrementally changing the garden according to a coordinated plan.

We eliminate poorly performing materials and add new plants -- most often California natives and other drought-tolerant materials. Our gardens grow and develop, keeping in mind our relationships with clients as their needs evolve.

From this central framework, we find inspiration in a variety of approaches to garden design including; the simple elegance of Japanese gardens, plants of the Mediterranean, English country-garden freedom, and French formality and order.

Closer to home, we are inspired by a broad range of gardens, from the Ruth Bancroft to Filoli, and have studied landscape architects including Russell Page and the Bay Area’s renowned Thomas Church.

Our approach includes considering plantings to maintain seasonal interest, careful pruning  to bring balance, and water-wise and native plants skillfully added to create a habitat with a natural feel and look.
