From the Ground Up helped me take advantage of the LADWP Turf Rebate Program and transform my boring, water guzzling lawn into a beautiful escape from urban life! Replacing the lawn with a combination of decomposed granite pathways, beds full of hardy and water wise California natives, and peaceful sitting areas. Jackie is so knowledgeable and after listening to our ideas, provided plenty of options and suggestions. She helped with getting quotes for drip irrigation and advised on the pros and cons of each quote. Jackie also went above and beyond to make sure that the plants we used would work in the setting, given our shade and sun limitations, and thoughtfully supervised the installation. We couldn't be happier.

I interviewed several landscape designers and chose From the Ground Up, because Jackie listened to my ideas and designed everything I wanted in a drought tolerant landscape. Her design incorporated all of my wishes including a reclaimed cement walkway and stone bench. The plants she selected complied with my impossible request of a drought tolerant garden that looked like or came close to looking like an English garden. Jackie continually followed up with details and helped supervise the landscape contractor. I am very pleased with the results of my faux English garden.

After spending many days and hours reading landscaping books and planting plants that would not look good from one year to the next, we decided to do it right. We found From the Ground Up Landscape Design and called Jackie. We explained what we wanted and she put it into a plan that sounded good. Next came the drawings, in scale, with all the plant names and their locations. There was a total of four drawings that we could take out for bids, plus she made up a folder with pictures and instructions on how to care and water, which I really needed. It is almost a year since installation and we are *really* satisfied, and would recommend her services again.
