We don't have a set style because our goal is to make your garden about you. Gardens are very personal and we want to find interesting solutions that fit your needs and aesthetics, while maintaining our objective of using cool plants. For us, cool plants are underused, visually interesting, difficult to find, or simply unusual or unexpected. Our preference is to pick the right plant for the conditions to avoid problems like illness, disease, or overgrowth. Our maintenance philosophy errs on the side of a plants' natural form.
Michelle finds enormous satisfaction in creating beautiful gardens for her clients to enjoy in all four seasons. Her Fine Arts degree from the University of Oregon informs her design work and enforces themes of texture, motion, and color that are anchored by stark, bold statements.
