Landscape gardening involves a partnership between gardener and environment and an understanding of why and how plants grow where they do.

Her plant palette includes native trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and grasses, and embraces dozens of adaptive plants that will flourish in the demanding conditions of the upland and desert West.
