Christiane Holmquist

I specialize in landscape design that is characterized by a delightful blend of artfully crafted space and alluring plants. I also use beautiful structures, art and architecture. I give plants a primary position to engage the senses with beauty and to strengthen our connection with nature. Xeriscape and low water usage landscape design is my passion. My aim is to create gardens where you can rejuvenate or play with family and friends. With basic training in Europe and specialization in ornamental horticulture and landscape design in California, I enjoy a wide range of resources. At the core of every design concept is your vision, so that your garden can become an expression of your tastes and needs. Let me create an enchanting garden for you!

“Christiane created a beautiful yet practical landscape design and referred us to an excellent contractor who did a terrific job implementing her plans. Christiane was easy to work with, incorporating our good ideas, gently steering us away from our bad ones, and creating brilliant concepts of her own. Her plant selection was excellent, and her accent lighting and fire pit design are fabulous. She was flexible about modifying the plans to fit within our construction budget. We absolutely love our new landscape as do all our friends. I high recommend Christiane Holmquist.”
