Dirt Beauty

More Beauty Less Water


DIRT BEAUTY is a landscape design company based in Santa Monica. 

We specialize in upgrading gardens and landscapes by integrating existing gardens with new plants, and various garden elements such as boulders, stones, sod, good artificial turf, etc.,  We are skilled garden stagers, creating maximum curbside appeal.  If appropriate, we use low water plants., and when necessary, repair irrigation and worn valves..   We also create beautiful designs for existing containers or new containers that can create drama and warmth to exterior hardscape as well as enhance a garden..

In 2014, I transitioned from a 30-year film career to designing, upgrading, and redesigning gardens. Now, in 2018, if you are selling or have just bought a new home, I am the person to call.  I love to raise the value of my clients homes, and to help new home owners make their new garden truly their own.  What I love to do most is upgrade, stage and celebrate a garden that has great bones but needs an objective, creative eye.  

During my childhood, my family owned a flourishing floral business, growing in several nurseries, plants and flowers.   DIRT BEAUTY is the result of a passionate and sustainable vision, and I have developed the necessary skills to create and nurture the diverse gardens of Southern California.  My landscaping experiences and evolving knowledge confirms we can live and work surrounded by More Beauty Less Water!  We can provide drought tolerant landscaping, sprinkler systems, new sod, new pavers, lighting, fencing, etc. to create a clean and reliable garden that  can easily be maintained.

We hope you will invite us to transform or simply upgrade you garden which will make you so happy to look at and sit in and watch every day the inpermanence of nature.  We are confident our gardens will enchance your life and hopefully the value of your property.
