Sloat garden designSince 1995 we’ve created custom design solutions for varied Bay Area clients; from San Francisco’s small jewel box gardens to Marin’s larger Oak groves and terraced hillsides. Whether your garden is a place to entertain, work, play, or just relax and take in the view, we can help personalize your garden’s design to meet your needs

  • We develop simple, success oriented low maintenance planting plans for gardens, decks, and terraces, as well as indoor plant consultations.
  • We can help brainstorm and problem solve ideas and solutions that work with existing plant material and takes into account your available time to garden. Then we put together a planting plan.
  • We develop a loose “bubble diagram” and a complete plant list with quantities and sizes of plant material, soil requirements, and pruning, feeding and care information.
  • Our planting plans can be easily followed by every level of gardener; whether you prefer to do it yourself or have a professional install your plants.
