About The Designer

Native YardScape grew from a long term passion for gardening and the fascination of our local plants in the Northern California and Bay area. I gained experience and developed my landscape knowledge  by completing the  Master Gardener Program through UC California. As a graduate of the program I began serving the public through the Master Gardner Help desk.  This experience spurred me to enroll in the Horticulture program at Merritt College and continue on in Landscape Design. 

I work in the  Contra Costa area designing and managing gardens.  I am a licensed nursery, a member of the Association for Professional Landscape Designers in the East Bay and have judged at the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show. 

I work with the Contra Costa Water District as a presenter and designer for their Landscape Design Assistance Program in conjunction with the Lose A Lawn - Get A Garden program. 

I am also certified as a water auditor and water efficient landscaper in Contra Costa County.
