“Jill has done several designs for me from container plantings for my business to design and installation of a drought tolerant garden at my home. All have turned out fabulously. In each case she listened to what I envisioned with my limited knowledge, then took her expertise and created a design and installation that far exceeded my expectations. Her knowledge of what varieties of plants work well in the climate is extensive and she is tenacious in finding just the right one.

Jill is dependable --she always arrived when she said she would, and finished all three projects as scheduled. She is easy to work with and genuinely cares that the client is satisfied. The drought tolerant garden she designed is thriving and attracting all kinds of butterflies and hummingbirds. I can't wait to work with her again!”

Verterra Landscape Design offers design services to meet each individual client’s needs. Services are offered from initial consultation to comprehensive Master Plan and include the following considerations:

Listening: We listen to our clients to help them identify what aesthetic look they would like to see in their outdoor spaces.

All season interest: Our designs include all season interest and beauty. Wise plant choices ensure color throughout the year, even in the depths of winter.

Beauty: A fine arts background combined with knowledge of landscape design and horticulture helps Jill achieve a beautiful blend of color, texture and form.

Function: A beautiful space must also be a functional space. Whether it be for street appeal, entertaining, a play area, edible garden or private sanctuary, your needs are our priority.

Low maintenance: We understand that you have busy lives and often steps must be taken to reduce maintenance. From simple to the most elaborate designs, there are tools we can use to reduce the amount of maintenance required. Wise choices of materials and plants and how they are organized can make a significant difference.

Budget: We can work with you to design a plan that will fit your budget without sacrificing quality. There are ways to help save, including phased plans and alternate plant and material choices.

Water-wise gardens: Water is a precious resource. Our design services include designs for water-wise gardens and xeriscaping. Low volume irrigation is an integral part of many of our designs.

Environment and sustainability: We are committed to, and feel a responsibility to design in a manner that respects our environment. Consideration is given to the site as well as surrounding areas. We design rain gardens to mitigate water run-off, reducing erosion and pollution of our waters. Plants and materials are carefully chosen to help reduce the need for toxic chemical solutions to landscape problems.
