Designed to inspire.
Dalla Terra’s mission is really quite simple: Cultivate sustainable communities. Every project I undertake, large and small, revolves around a belief in the power of the space we live in. My designs help clients celebrate life, integrate with our surroundings, nourish the soul, heal what’s broken and inspire us to reach further. Ultimately my goal as your Landscape Designer is to create a garden bed, yard or campus that will give you joy.
Common features include:
- Edible plantings in formal and informal beds, using fruit, herbs, vegetables and flowers.
- Child-friendly designs that encourage the kid in all of us to explore the outdoors.
- Native and micro-climate appropriate plantings.
- Rain gardens in the form of bio-swales, stormwater planters and eco-roofs.
- Well-designed spaces for entertaining, relaxing, cooking and playing.
- Sustainable, low-maintenance plantings.
- Year-round interest that celebrates the changing seasons.
Landscape service offerings include:
- Full-service residential landscape design
- Selecting that perfect plant, or collection of plants, to fill in an empty landscape bed
- Hardscape detailing (patios, trellises, deck, fences, etc)
- Plant purchasing and placement
- Construction observation
Furthermore, Dalla Terra is so much more than just a landscape design company. My experience, designing specialized housing environments, means that I know what it takes to live comfortably and sustainably. My depth of understanding regarding both built structures and our outside environment means that I can help you gracefully transition and expand one into the other.
