Landscape Design for Garden Transformations

Rootsy Garden Design specializes in custom landscape design for residential properties, large and small. The majority of our clients are in need of entirely new visions for their outdoor living spaces. Our design service is unique to every project because every client and landscape is unique. We consider client needs, preferences, garden goals and explore how those can merge beautifully with the existing landscape’s qualities, challenges and potential. The end result is a landscape design for a thoughtful and successful garden transformation.

We love what we do and look forward to working with you.


Design-Build Partnerships

We partner with licensed landscape contractors who need support with managing plant procurement, detailed planting plans, landscape designs, maintenance consultation, or horticultural training for their team. Contact us to inquire.

Landscape Revival

Are you starting to get dirty looks from your neighbors or can no longer find the garden among the weeds? We’ll help you revive the aesthetic and health of your garden with a creative and more manageable design.

Lose the Lawn

It’s time to convert your thirsty lawn to a more natural, eye-catching and sustainable garden. There are many lawn alternatives to consider and we’ll help customize a beautiful space you’ll love. You’ll feel great about making this change and setting an example for your neighbors. You may even be eligible to get $ back from the many water conservation rebates available.

Consultation & Garden Coaching

We’ve got DIY enthusiasts covered! We provide consultation and garden coaching to help you prepare for implementing your own vision.

Fun for Fido

We are dog lovers at Rootsy (Laura has 3!) and understand the importance of incorporating safe and stimulating garden elements for our pets. After all, they often spend more time in the garden than we do. If your dog’s happiness is of utmost importance to you, ask us about our canine-centric garden designs.

Social Garden Demonstrations

Spending too much time tagging garden pics with friends on social media? Invite them over for a social and educational experience in your garden. You provide the drinks and food and we’ll take care of the entertainment with a fun, fact-filled garden demonstration. 

Complimentary Projects

We allot time for 1 annual collaboration with non-profit organizations and schools. It is our joy to assist groups that are doing great work for communities but may not have the budget for the garden design they deserve. Inquire here.

irrigation audits

As of 2015, California took an important step in promoting efficient water use via modifications to the Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance (MWELO). MWELO is a model for local agencies to use when enforcing building standards in construction and landscape design. Depending on your city and the scope of your project, a MWELO Report may be needed. We are well versed in the MWELO requirements and are qualified under EPA Water Sense to perform irrigation audit reports.
