Liz did a complete landscape design for our front and back yards, including hardscape, raised planting beds, trees, hedges and plants. She listening to our preferences and then translated them into a beautiful design. She is very knowledgeable about plants and had good ideas for us. She also recommended several contractors, including Living Well Landscape. We were very happy with her recommendation. They, too, have done an excellent job for us. Liz is a very skilled professional and we are very grateful for her help with our project.Read More

We contacted with Liz Ryan to provide the landscape design for our recently purchased property in Scotts Valley. Our project consisted of a full acre of landscaping, including hardscape, Greenscape, terracing, French drains, and the planting and drip irrigation of more than 400 plants and trees. Our design was intended to be drought tolerant, low maintenance, and water conscious. We were thrilled with the design that Liz came up with! She was able to accomplish all of our objectives on the first iteration. Only minor tweaking was required to complete the optimization. Her knowledge of plant varieties, and landscaping methods are tremendous. Once the design was complete, she provided the names of several contractors who she felt were well suited to implementing the design. Upon interviewing and selecting the contractor, Liz supported the execution of landscaping throughout the process, beginning to end. She also worked closely with the landscaper to ensure all of the best plants were sourced from reputable sources, and planted properly. Liz was an absolute pleasure to work with, consistently professional and supportive. With her expert design and guidance, we now have a beautiful property that we can enjoy to the fullest. We wholeheartedly recommend her without reservation.Read More

Liz helped us with design and plans for our entire landscaping project in Berkeley (front and back yards and sides of house). Full disclosure, we have known Liz for years, and we went to her because we absolutely love her design aesthetic. We knew Liz would help us get the professional look we couldn't get ourselves. Liz has been an amazing guide throughout the process - advising us on every step from design to purchase and selection of materials. We're getting ready to break ground and plant now and are looking forward to bringing her incredible vision to life!Read More

Liz was a wonderful designer to work with in every way. She listened attentively to our wish list and the problems that needed solving and translated those into an elegant design for our backyard. She brought new ideas and worked in the existing elements we wanted to keep. Her design was thorough enough for us to get an accurate bid for construction and she was professional and responsive to our requests for changes or revisions. She also collaborated well with our contractors to see the design implemented as imagined. She has a great eye for detail too! Our yard came out beautiful and we are now able to enjoy it day and night and all year round! We were very pleased with our experience and product and would work with her again!Read More

Liz Ryan of Wildflower Landscape Design provided exactly the type of service that we needed - a creative landscape design for our large front yard where the previous owners had removed lawn. It was full of weeds and needed a completely new look. Her design exceeded our expectations. She ensured that our desires were met - drought-tolerant, low maintenance and bee-friendly plants.Read More

Liz was awesome! She really understood what we wanted out of our yard, but also pushed back when her ideas were better (almost always). So far, our yard looks really great and has also been ridiculously easy to maintain.Read More

We are so thrilled to have had the privilege of working with Liz on the renovation of our front and side yards. After renovating most of the interior of our home, it was time to update the yards. The space was an unusable jungle and dirt pile that we wanted to transform into usable outdoor living space for our family and pup. Liz designed the space to fit our needs just perfectly! She provides a very comprehensive service from initial meeting / brainstorming, to preparing a beautiful, practical and well thought out design, to final plant selection, coordination and placement. We are in the final phases of install and can't wait to enjoy the beautiful space Liz designed for us. She has incredible plant and landscape knowledge, is very thorough in understanding her clients’ visions and needs and is a true professional. We highly recommend Wildflower Landscape Design! Thank you LizRead More
