About Me

Native YardScape grew from my long term passion for gardening and a fascination of our local plants in the 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 then to continue into the  Landscape Design Program.

I work in the  Contra Costa area designing and managing gardens.

I am a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers in the East Bay, a QWEL certified water efficient landscaper, 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. —
