An Interview with Voyage LA

 

I had a wonderful time doing an interview with Voyage LA Magazine recently. We talked about landscape design as a tool to improve health and well being, how the field is adjusting to climate change, and the design process I think through every time I put together a landscape plan.

Customer reviews

Toni helped me to turn my front yard from a weedy patch into a much-admired showcase of waterwise design, approved by the city of Santa Barbara. Apart from her knowledge, what I most appreciated is that she let me choose many of the plants that I coveted, that she ordered them from a high quality supplier so that they bloomed vigorously and returned the second year with abandon, and that her color pallet fitted beautifully with an art installation in progress. The process was harmonious, the price extremely fair and the result much admired by neighbors and visitors.
Toni was a pleasure to collaborate with, professional and easy to work with. She was open to our ideas and had great suggestions on how to maximize our small space and make it look beautiful. Toni was able to recommend plants that were ideal for our yard conditions and that would be resilient in the Southern California weather. She even helped us create a secret fairy garden in a formerly totally unused space. We are now proud to host family parties and we enjoy hanging out in the yard surrounded by the beautiful flowers and greenery when we relax outside.
It was a pleasure working with Toni on the total redesign of our backyard! We removed all of the grass, and put down Palm Springs Gold rock. Free-form planting areas were placed in the rock and filled with drought-tolerant plants. Toni's knowledge of drought-tolerant plant possibilities is a valuable tool. We have delighted in watching the planting areas mature; with amazing flowers appearing. It was easy to work with Toni and trust her knowledge and experience!
