GARDEN VISIONS Landscape Design:
serving Humboldt County — Eureka, Arcata, Fortuna, Ferndale, McKinleyville, and Trinidad

As a professional landscape designer, I offer you the benefits of my years of design experience. I am skilled at designing landscapes that reflect an in-depth understanding of your site, your needs, and your interests. This results in a landscape that works for you, both functionally and aesthetically. As one of my clients put it:
"Donna has been my garden coach and consultant on several occasions. All of these sessions have given me realistic goals, have resulted in pleasurable garden areas, and have saved me time, energy and money. Gardening has been so much more rewarding with her guidance!" 
—Joan W., Eureka
I am familiar with a wide range of plants that grow well in our region--including native plants, low-maintenance plants, and drought tolerant plants--and can provide you with information on growing and maintaining these plants.
     I enjoy integrating herb, fruit, and vegetable garden spaces into the larger landscape, and I always aim to visually unite house and landscape. Though I work in a number of different landscape styles, my goal is always the same: to design landscapes with four-season interest that are both beautiful and functional.

A well-designed landscape provides many benefits:
  • Increases the value of your house. (According to Money magazine, landscaping offers the highest return on investment of any home improvement.)
  • Complements the style and color of your house.
  • Provides solutions for problems such as lack of privacy, or undesirable views.
  • Incorporates the garden features that are important to you.
  • Provides spaces that meet your needs for recreation, entertainment, relaxation, or food production.
  • Is tailored to the amount of gardening work you wish to do.
  • Offers interest all year-round.
  • Enriches your life with the beauty of plants and harmonious design.
