Marilyn’s Garden Design Service

My business is dedicated to providing personalized landscape design for homeowners in North County San Diego.

I have been working and designing in the residential landscape field since graduating from the University of Arizona in Tucson. My degree is in Horticulture with an emphasis on Landscape Architecture. Artistic talent, natural creativity and extensive knowledge of low-water plants, combined with years of practical experience, helps me to define and manifest your dream landscape.

On the practical side, I work with my clients’ budget as well as their dreams. I am able to expertly guide the project with careful planning for the best outcome. My artistic service includes creative solutions for design challenges. “I hope I never stop learning. There are always new things to find along the way. Each project is unique, a garden to be discovered.”

“I hope I never stop learning. There are always new things to find along the way. Each project is unique, a garden to be discovered.”

In my designs, I like to work with nature’s flow; the “naturalness” of the terrain; seeking to reproduce the sense of adventure and discovery we all experienced as children. Garden sanctuaries, seating areas, shade structures, patios, water features, garden art, benches, butterfly gardens, hummingbird gardens, bridges, nature paths, rocks and boulders, conversation gardens, atriums, fireplaces and secret gardens; all of these and more are a part of my imaginative design.
