Meet Our Contractor & Designer
Growing up in Canada, Morganne grew up loving nature, plants and working outdoors. For her, camping, swimming in lakes, and hiking was a part of growing up. Morganne was fascinated with her grandmother’s grand country garden from a young age and this would be one of her earliest inspirations for her as she grew to love nature and design. Morganne's experience in the industry began with a 3 acre rural estate home, where she worked to transform the neglected country garden. This landscape became a test ground for the plant pallet of Southern California and was "labor of love," as the garden matured over the next ten years.
Morganne spent most weekends at the nursery buying plants, planting, and taking care of the garden. During this time she also enrolled in the Horticulture/Landscape Architecture program at Mira Costa College and was hooked. By the end of 2006, Morganne branched out and has since completed countless designing projects throughout San Diego County.
Morganne is a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD).
Morganne is now in the heart of downtown San Diego and also creates Balcony Landscapes.

WHY DO I NEED A DESIGN?
“You are about to spend a considerable amount of money on your landscape. It’s our advice to know what you are going to get and know all your options so that after completion you are not wishing you did this or that differently”
In order to quote accurately and build it efficiently we need every decision, practicality, material and transition point clarified.
We can help you achieve this in a with consultations. Our design process begins with an initial consultation with you at your home where we gather information by listening, taking notes, assessing your design style, person tastes, lifestyle and budget.
