You want your outdoor space to meet your family's needs, be age appropriate, safe, drought tolerant, nurturing, sustaining, restorative...and beautiful.

When you come home you need to commune with nature in your own piece of peace. Laura Ponder can help your space go from yard to jardin!

Laura is based in Lafayette, CA and can help you realize the outdoor space you will love coming home to. Laura offers her skills to suit your garden needs: from one hour consultations (for the DIY gardener who wants a little coaching) to full master plans and coordination with your installation contractor (for those with less time or patience but no less passion).
