Collaboratively creating textural, colorful, low maintenance artistic gardens for over 10 years, Plan-it Earth Design specializes in sustainable residential landscapes that are fun. Include edible along with native and compatible plants chosen to thrive in your habitat. Protect rivers from stormwater overflow by adding a rain garden; build the soil with its web of life; entertain friends on your patio while watching birds feast on insects, berries and nectar. Discover the nurturing tranquility a garden offers family, pets & you - Let's create one together.

Sustainable Qualification Summary
My approach to garden design is from a permaculture and sustainability perspective. Design is driven by site, circulation requirements, habitat type, local conditions. Plants are selected based upon their compatibility with their neighbors and the soil conditions and light exposure. Native plants are encouraged, yet aesthetics are critical. Materials are selected with concern for embodied energy, sustainable harvesting, permeability, etc. Low water use and year round interest are the goals. Collaboration is the key to success with close communications with homeowners and contractors alike. Listening is a skill I have acquired and I work hard for my clients, solving problems and arriving at beautiful solutions.

Amy did the landscape design for my house and turned a total eyesore into the coolest place in the neighborhood. The goal was a landscape that was local, native, low water, low maintenance, edible, etc. She did a great job and I get tons of compliments from my neighbors.
