Stylish Sustainability

​​We make California gardens that express a point of view unique to our mild coastal climate.

We create sustainable and elegant solutions for your garden; useful and harmonious outdoor places for work and relaxation.

​Working from our own garden in the Oakland foothills, we provide a specific range of services: garden consultations; garden design, renovation and restoration; garden staging for the real estate market and special events.  We create and sell succulent containers, often using house-propagated succulent plants.

Our philosophy is one of minimal impact. Whenever possible we preserve pre-existing plant materials or structural and decorative elements, and introduce California natives and drought-tolerant plantings.

Our inspiration comes from a range of garden-makers and garden styles, bringing to your space the ideas that work best for you. Ours is a blend of the contemporary, natural, and traditional, which combine to make yours an artfully composed garden  All these influences, taken together, produce gardens with a point of view - a California point of view.
