Hello!

Let's work together to turn your mangled mud pit, overgrown jungle, or boring blank slate into to a yard that you actually want to be in. There are so many ways to improve your outdoor living area- as simple as adding just the right plants in just the right places or as complex as a complete overhaul. 

Most of my design work these days is through Landscape Design in a Day. I love our collaborative design process and our commitment to blogging about the projects and garden tips.

 
 

About Me

I am a plant lover first and foremost. I am always on the lookout for interesting small trees, drought-tolerant natives, lush groundcovers, and a comfy spot to enjoy the view.  

I grew up exploring Oregon’s forests with my sister but hadn't thought of Horticulture as a career choice. I got my degree in Engineering, which taught me the importance of order and process. After eight years of cubicle life, I signed up for the OSU Master Gardener program, which proved to be my gateway. Following training from PCC Landscape Technology courses, I have built a career transforming outdoor spaces for Portland homeowners.


I am a mother of two, a believer in the power of local community, an avid backpacker, and a wannabe homesteader. My favorite spot is Elk Cove meadow on the north side of Mount Hood. 

 

Testimonials

"Working with Alana was awesome!  We wanted to have a drought-tolerant yard design, and also incorporate native plants into the yard.  It was also important for us to support the bees and hummingbirds with our plant choices.  Alana helped us by creating a yard design that had all of the pieces we were looking for.  She supported us through the whole process as we relandscaped the yard.  She was available to answer any questions or help us when we needed advice.  We are beyond thrilled with our new yard!"

"Thank you so much for coming and creating such a beautiful design for our patio. I so enjoyed meeting you and working together to get all of the details just right. I appreciate your process and your vision. You pulled everything together so quickly~ I learned a lot and was glad to be done with all of my plant doubt and indecisiveness after you entered the scene. The garden will now look so beautiful!!"

Josh and I feel so lucky to have found Alana to design our dream garden oasis. It would have taken us years to plan what she masterfully designed in a day! We were not ready to do everything at once, but with a professional design plan customized to our liking, we were able to move forward with a plan. (Even though it has been implemented in stages and mostly diy!) She offered support through the entire process, from the very beginning design stage to follow up after our phased installation. We would highly recommend her services to anyone who is interested in quality and creative landscape design.
