I'm a California licensed landscape architect with 20+ years of experience.
My portfolio of built work includes; schools, parks, civic spaces, commercial developments, and religious environments.
I am deeply interested in mid-century California gardens - preserving originals and creating authentic new gardens.

· The Eichler X100
· Koerner Garden, Palm Springs
· Hoover House , Stanford University
· Kaufmann Desert House
· The Eichler Homes Office Building
· King’s Point, Palm Springs
· Ocotillo Lodge, Palm Springs
· Baldwin Hills Village, Los Angeles
· Fay Park, San Francisco
We have been lucky to work in some truly amazing modern gardens. This inspired us to create durable outdoor furniture with a strong mid-century modern vibe. First came the tripod vessel stands - scaled to fit the classic fiberglass “bullet” planter. They also accommodate other planters and trays. The versatility of the stands led us to start experimenting with concrete tops to create super durable patio tables. We guarantee that these tables won't blow around your yard.
Contact us for availability.
Vintage pieces add interest and authenticity to your modern garden. We provide vintage mid-century modern garden furniture (refurbished as needed), planters, fountains, sculpture, and objects for our projects.
What we have on hand varies.

It was published in 2006 by William Stout Books in San Francisco. It is out of print, but we have a supply and would be happy to provide you with a new wrapped copy. Used copies can be had (cheap) on Amazon.
