Hi all,


Bubbling this post back up to see if anyone has great mockup ideas or if they are any great Oakland-based or virtual landscape designers looking for small jobs during the quarantine ;-)


I'm looking to improve the curb appeal for my house with nice plants!

  • The house is in Northern California (Oakland)
  • I would love a drought-tolerant tropical look. I like bougainvillea, palms, banana trees, fruit trees, snake plants, lavender, hibiscus, potato vine, kangaroo paws, African lily, red hot poker, amaranth, salvias, oleander, rosemary, edible plants, azalea, forsythia, agave, New Zealand flax, fountain grass, bromeliads, marvel-of-Peru, birds of paradise.
  • Not working with a huge budget (with a potential recession, I will have to settle with buying small plants that can grow over time)

Suggestions, photos, ideas welcome! Here's what I'm working with:
