Ecology By Design :: Video

landscape master plan featuring native plants and low water useIn college, my love of the outdoors, plants, and sculpture trumped my original desire to pursue interior architecture of buildings. I found that I wanted to spend more time near rivers whitewater kayaking and studying the natural landscape, as much as I wanted to discuss green building in tidy, confined gardens in the city. It is my mission to design interactive and aesthetic landscapes where more people have a taste, in their daily lives, of the refreshing experiences we feel in nature.

My natural talent, education, and passion led me immediately upon moving to Santa Cruz to work for some of the most successful, high-end, and award-winning architects, designers, and contractors in the Bay lanscape master plan featuring native plants and low water use Area. I have been involved in some way with four award-winning installations at the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show.

In finding my own design ‘voice’ I am continually honed in to my commitment—more like an instinct—of sensitivity to the environment in the design choices that I make. This instinct is the same as what led me to choose the graduate program at the Conway School of Landscape Design, work extensively with Ken Foster of Terra Nova Ecological Landscaping, and study Permaculture (and some teaching). It is why I attend conferences and join groups such as the Ecological Landscaping Association.

environmental landscape design on paperWhether I have a pencil in my hand, a kayak paddle, or a shovel, I am in my element. I look forward to working with you, and I am sure that a landscape design by Ecology By Design will surpass the confines of your property lines as well as your expectations. Thank you for your interest in my company.
