"Beth put together an amazing landscape plan for our backyard... Thanks to Beth, we have a complete plan that includes all native plants, a plan to make our grass more dog-proof and a way to add more privacy to our yard space. I could not be happier with her plan...and I can’t wait to get started."
~Ashley R.

"Beth is absolutely wonderful. We were feeling very overwhelmed by our inherited garden, and Beth came in and organized it for us and has also created a fantastic plan for a native backyard garden... She is extremely talented...and a pleasure to work with."
~Jody E.

"Working with Beth has been very satisfying. [She is] an artistic designer. She created a plan for my backyard that incorporates my criteria: natives, edibles, low maintenance, hardscaping and my favorite plants... I highly recommend Beth, and I look forward to working with her again for my front yard plan."
~Karen F.

Interested in backyard habitat certification?

I offer solutions for conscientious habitat creation without sacrificing aesthetics. Your yard does not have to look like a jungle for your conscience to be clean!

Explore Portland Audubon's Backyard Habitat Certification Program, get a site assessment, and call me to discuss plans and implementation.

"Because native plants are adapted to local environmental conditions, they require far less water, saving time, money, and perhaps the most valuable natural resource, water. In addition to providing vital habitat for birds, many other species of wildlife benefits as well."
