Landscape Design & Consultation

I provide services to Sonoma County and the general Sacramento area.

Landscape Design:

I design home landscapes that nurture both the environment and its urban residents.
I specialize in:

  • small, urban spaces
  • water-wise gardens
  • pollinator and butterfly gardens
  • wildlife habitats
  • edible landscapes
  • urban homesteads
  • kitchen gardens

If you are interested in self-sufficiency and homesteading, I love to integrating permaculture principles, edibles, herbs, chickens, bees and other urban livestock to your landscape, as well as incorporate rainwater harvesting and greywater systems.

Complete Landscape Design: $250 and up, depending on yard size

Check out this page if you are interested in knowing more about how the design process works and what to expect.

Contact me today to book your complimentary consultation on what we can do for your space and make your landscape come to life!

Landscape & Urban Homestead Consultations:

If you don’t need a full design, or are a DIYer but need just a bit of help, my consultation services are perfect for you!  After an initial phone conversation, we will meet at your site and discuss your needs. I will then provide you with a written assessment and, if needed, a general, not-to-scale concept drawing.

My consultation sessions can help you:  

  • Learn the best way to layout your garden and homestead features
  • Make the best use of your space
  • Work around existing features
  • Save time and money by establishing a logical project timeline
  • Determine the right plant for the right place

Consultation Package: $150 and up

What Others Are Saying:

I really enjoyed meeting with Melissa. She was a great listener and had many productive ideas about how I might use my tiny yard areas in a more thoughtful way. She looked at the orientation and surrounding influences (plants, neighbors, water sources, etc.), provided plant suggestions and more. I came away with new energy and plans for my space to include chickens!  – Michelle, Santa Rosa
