Edible Gardens
Eating food and using herbs grown from your garden is so satisfying. Forget running to the store for that ingredient you forget! It’s right outside. If you don’t have the time to maintain the beds we can do that for you. You receive the bounty of your garden and any excess can be donated to food banks or composted.

Drought Tolerant Landscapes
Blessed to live in a mediterranean climate, we have many plant choices! California has over 4,000 native species. The other 4 mediterranean climate zones add to plant pallet options. We provide choices that give year round color, splendor and habitat for you, birds, butterflies, bees and beneficial bugs. Habitat increases the vitality of the landscape, reduces pest problems, and provides a source of tranquility and delight.

“Thanks to design and installation consultation with Ellen, years of dreaming about the potential of our apartment building's small back yard have finally come to fruition in a collective garden we can all enjoy. We now have several seating areas/focal points, food- and flower-growing beds, barbecue space, and a real honest-to-goodness little bandstand for live performance. We appreciate Ellen and her work!”
