Living Landscapes has been creating works of art for our client's outdoor spaces since 2003. 
Designing gardens, patios, sanctuaries, residential and commercial landscapes, we have strived to provide unique and tailored designs, while guiding our client's from the inspirational concept through the completed project.

Principle designer and contractor, Karen Holt attended Cal Poly for Landscape Architecture and ultimately received her BA in Art History from UCI. 

With extensive horticultural knowledge which borders on being a plant 'Geek' Karen provides inspirational planting combinations, that are drought tolerant while taking into consideration the "right plant for the right place" which reduces maintenance and green waste.  With her background as an artist and historian, the planting plan and the structural design of the patios, water features, outdoor living spaces, pools and spas reflect the style of the home, the location and the client's desires.
