Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers

About Us

We are a Landscape Design company whose focus is creating outdoor living spaces our clients want to live in. We incorporate their needs, wants and desires with our expertise in spacial planning, use of materials, outdoor lighting and classic design style. We design gardens around those living areas that provide color, texture and interest year round. Debbie Brooks has always been interested in gardening and design. She started her landscape design career in 1983 after dabbling in the graphic arts, architecture and interior design. While earning her AA degree in Horticulture and Landscape Design from Edmonds College in Seattle, Washington, she worked alongside a landscape contractor. She was responsible for designing projects and coordinating the crews to implement her designs. Debbie was also in charge of several maintenance accounts which helped her design more practical and functional designs. Starting in the wholesale nursery department at Teufel Nursery, one of Oregon’s largest nurseries, she gained extensive knowledge and experience in plant sales. She eventually headed up the newly formed residential construction department, and began working part-time designing and developing garden spaces for clients she met through her connections at the nursery. Debbie left Teufel after six years and in 1996 began pursuing her own venture: Creative Garden Spaces.
