Welcome to Garden Planning Services
How my passion started
Growing up in an urban environment on the East Coast,
I graduated with an Architectural Degree from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn New York. Although I have always had a
secret passion for plants and landscape design; (I remember the numerous fire escapes that were adorned by my plant
containers and hanging planters without impeding on the fire code.) it wasn't until I moved to Oregon that I realized
how strong a passion it was.
One of my other passions is protecting our environment not only
for today but for generations to follow. After 20 years of project management in several different construction venues,
I had several opportunities that allowed me to express my garden/landscape design and landscape project management skills.
After these opportunities, I knew that garden/landscape design was what I wanted to do. I have spent the past fourteen years
working closely with clients to help them create their garden vision.
The main services I provide are Garden Design and exceptional Customer Service. The process
to design the client's garden vision starts with a free consultation and a Client Questionnaire that enables the client to
fine-tune their vision. I then do a thorough Site Assessment to evaluate current conditions and factors particular to the
site and how the client's goals and garden vision will be laid out.
I then provide Concept Sketches to the client for review and final approval.
Once the client approves the plan, planting materials are selected and finalized. I provide complete project management and follow up services which include
checking the plants during the first year. I also provide a Complete Design package along with a Planting List Care package
so that the client can maintain, care for, and love their garden!
Thank you for inviting me into your Garden.
