Design services are available for residential projects in the greater Sacramento area.

The art of landscape design starts with you, the homeowner. Colleen's philosophy is to discover what you want by listening to you and adding her ideas and concepts to create an innovative custom design for you. She will ask questions, look at your geographic location and surrounding environment, get a feel for your interests and discuss your outdoor usage of the space. Then she will artistically put this all together to create your individual, unique outdoor space that is an extension of who you are and meets your needs for years to come.


Colleen’s services can include any of the following categories depending on your project needs:

  • Consulting – Review of the site with recommendations on patios, decks, walkways, water features, pools, retaining walls, outdoor lighting, barbecues and outdoor kitchen design, arbors, overhead structures, irrigation/drainage needs, art décor, all other outdoor options and of course the selection and placement of trees/shrubs and smaller plants. Consulting also includes water usage and other sustainability concerns. Consulting services may develop into a detailed conceptual plan.

  • Contractor Referral – Refer homeowner to quality licensed contractors for installation, product and other services.

  • Project Coordination – A service for homeowners to have Colleen coordinate with the licensed contractors throughout the project to ensure the integrity of the design.
