Christina is no shrinking violet and her designs are vibrant and fun. With an unerring eye for color and drama, she makes any space special, from simple front-door entryways to poolside containers. Her deep knowledge of pacific northwest plants means landscapes are long-lasting and easy to care for; she always uses the fine foliage of hardy shrubs and perennials to anchor the design, and adds flair from there. This approach saves clients money since ill-chosen plants don't have to be discarded and landscapes don't have to be reworked. Her vivacious personality delights and is easy to work with; she'll make sure your designs fit your personality and style.
