DIRT BEAUTY is located in Santa Monica, California. We specialize in designing and uplifting gardens by integrating the best qualities of an existing garden with various new elements. We install colorful, drought tolerant plants, and convert all sprinklers to drip lines. Sprinklers give plants a shower; drip lines give them a bath. This not only saves water, it’s also a much more effective watering system.

We incorporate boulders, river rocks, polished stones, walk-on bark, a variety of pavers, and often install high-quality artificial turf. Additionally, we create stunning, dramatic container designs for patios, pools, and hardscape areas…quiet meditation spots surrounded by lovely jasmine, lavender…the nature that helps quiet the mind.

In 2014, I transitioned from a 30-year career producing and directing films to landscape design. Eight years later, I have completed over one hundred landscape projects, often transforming a canvas of hard dirt into a sustainable, beautiful garden. California gardens need our love and support navigating years of drought, and ever-changing weather that is affecting every aspect of nature, including your treasured garden.

My landscape design experiences, and evolving knowledge of how to sustain and protect the gardens we have been given, inspires me to always create more beauty...less water.
We hope to see you soon.

“Patricia is a true landscape artist and delivers far more than one can expect. Our project was massive and involved extensive soft and hardscape planning and design. Patricia and her team delivered at every level. Best of all, at each turn we found new challenges and needs, and Patricia adapted verses taking a one-size fits all approach. Landscape is the first impression for any home, and it’s important not to cut corners there. If you want a project completed and done right Dirt Beauty is the way to go”

“We hired Dirt Beauty to refresh our garden. Patricia helped us select and install drought tolerant plants, surrounding ground cover, some fruit trees, drip irrigation, and lighting. The results far exceeded our expectations. The garden is absolutely spectacular. Patricia was easy to work with, responsive, timely, and on budget. The overall cost was extremely reasonable. We give Dirt Beauty our highest recommendation.”

“We recently had the most incredible experience working with Dirt Beauty.  Our gardens are the talk of the neighborhood.  Patricia was so easy to work with as she listened to what we wanted, and easily and artistically created a beautiful garden that surpassed our initial ideas and expectations.  Her vision created magic!  We strongly recommend Dirt Beauty for anyone looking to reimagine their yard and gardens.  Five stars all the way!”
