About Me



I have been interseted in plants since I was a small child. My interest grew into a gardening hobby, which grew into my career. I studied horticulture at Santa Rosa Junior College, where I majored in Garden Design and Landscape Management and earned a degree with the Deans highest honors. I continually enrich my plant knowledge in my free time with my ongoing persuit to learn more about plants. Designing gardens allows me to create art and ecology at the same time. I love what I do and it's my goal to help people love plants as much as I do by helping them find the ones that will fullfil their function and bring joy to behold. 


I am dedicated to finding the right plant to fit your garden and landscape needs. My gardens are inspired by nature, utilizing natural elements to bring stability and combining that with the very best  plant proformers to make your garden shine.

Rose is the best landscape gardener we have ever had, I just can’t say enough good things about her. We had a good garden a friend of ours helped us make, Rose was able to make everything come together very beautifully and she made it look good the whole year. Our choices had been great for June Blooming flowers, but Rose added plants that made it great all year. Everything she told us to plant worked!

Rose designed a bird garden for me. Everything she chose for my garden was perfect. I can see finches and chickadees from my desk window everyday of the year. I will be forever grateful to Rose for bringing the elements of nature together in her designs so beautifully. I didn’t know most of these plants existed! but the birds just love them!

Nature’s Designs transformed my front yard. I wanted bright colors in a shady area and no maintenance. They did all of this and I was so pleased, it even showcased my statuary art! Rose really knows her plants.

I really wanted to fix up my yard before a big party. I already had some stuff I liked, but a lot that wasn’t working. When I called Nature’s Designs Rose was able to see what I had that I wanted to keep and build on it in just the right way that I never would have thought of to make my yard look like the pages of a magazine. I love my new yard.
