About Us

Chicago North Shore Landscape Design-Build Firm- Best of Houzz 2021
Calafia Design LLC was started in 2003 by Katy Sheppard. It is a culmination of years of education and experience in planting, hardscape, art and design that informs a sense of space, layout, color and construction. The designs are grounded in pragmatism, so that your garden is an intuitive extension of you. Katy, a native Californian, earned her BA from University of California, San Diego. She first entered the green industries in her mid-20’s, spending several years as a landscaper, then carpenter for a landscape architecture firm. She pursued further studies in drafting, design, painting (both figurative and abstract), and finally, a two-year certificate in Ornamental Horticulture at the Regenstein School at the Chicago Botanic Garden. She is a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers. Although Calafia Design is a solo operation, Katy employs the expertise of some of the North Shore’s top landscape installation firms to provide every phase of your landscape project from concept to realization.
