Together, we combine more than 15 years in horticulture and the landscape design and build industry.
Armando, Operations and Project Manager, has worked in all phases of the landscape and hardscape industry. From irrigation and lighting to hardscape and softscape installation, Armando brings a focused attention to detail and a methodical work ethic to all that he does. Armando plans for durability by selecting the appropriate materials and installation methods so your patios, walkways, arbors and fences will stand just as strong years from now as they do the day we finish.
Hallie, Lead Designer, is a graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo's Horticulture program. Her experience as a horticulturist maintaining established gardens, such as those at the historic Filoli in Woodside, gives her an edge in creating landscapes that will succeed and be practical to maintain, in addition to being beautiful. She is passionate about plants and takes pride in creating gardens with all-season interest and unique color palettes. She also advises on best practices for soil health, the cornerstone to any successful garden.
