My background includes a childhood growing up in the nursery business, where I learned to love and appreciate plants of all kinds.  In UCLA’s Landscape Architecture Program, I acquired a formal education in all elements of garden design and was named “most outstanding student.”  Since 1976, I have designed many Southern California outdoor spaces – including patios, decks, overhangs, irrigation, fountains, pools, lighting and planting.

Everyone has a vision of what paradise is like.   What I have tried to accomplish over the years is to help people get in touch with and express their own unique vision for their gardens.  I have developed a process to facilitate people in visualizing how their gardens will look and how they will change over time.  This process, which I have refined over many years of practice, will enable you to make the garden of your dreams a reality.
