I have been designing gardens since 1996. My focus is on full service design of residential gardens in the Bay Area. I also work with installers to ensure proper interpretation of the design, development of hardscaping, and placement of plants. Throughout all my work, my goal is to create the kind of gardens my clients want, through clear communication in a timely, service-oriented manner. Client satisfaction is indicated by a high rate of repeat business. Clients are located primarily but not exclusively in the East Bay. In addition, I have designed for public gardens, and also have experience preparing houses for sale to improve curb appeal.

"Katie was on top of the whole process, from design through final installation. She kept us informed about what was going on and what would happen next and when. So we were confident that it would all work out. And it did!" ~ Susan
"We have asked Katie back several times to design different parts of our property. Each time she listened to what we want, and worked with us to achieve a wonderful result that worked with the rest of the property as well." (4X Repeat customer) ~ Linda
“Love my garden! Katie helped me turn my old, overgrown back yard into a peaceful retreat. Now I love to spend afternoons on my new patio, enjoying the different plants, the birds, and the sound of the waterfall. Katie listened to what I wanted and helped me create that special space. It's beautiful all seasons of the year". ( 2X Repeat customer)
"Katie was a pleasure to work with. She was the only one of our contractors who brought the project in on time and under budget. And the garden is beautiful! We are delighted with the results". ~ Paul
