Katrina helped us transform our old-fashioned backyard into a contemporary, family-friendly space, including a thriving vegetable garden in what was once a no-man’s land. She was always available to make the project work, and we knew we could rely on her no matter what issues came up. — N. Gordon Santa Monica, California

Katrina designed a drought resistant garden for us that not only uses next to no water but is also colorful and beautiful. I especially liked how professional she was, and really knew her stuff. She paid a lot of attention to the details as well as what plants we liked and didn’t. A true master of the garden. — J. Webb Rancho Park, California

My 30 year old overgrown garden needed a new look, on a tight budget. Katrina and her outstanding crew pruned, divided and replanted the “best here” and planted enough new material to create a refreshing well tended look. She has an excellent eye, her style is restrained but creative and she is the consummate consultant; she listens, explains but does not compromise design. — M. O’Reilly, Westwood

Katrina Coombs planned a beautiful garden with drought-resistant plants that thrive on less than half of the water we needed for our former, thirsty garden. As spring and summer have advanced, we’ve been surprised and delighted with the variety of unusual flowers and the birds and butterflies that they attract. Katrina listened to our needs, provided us with choices and resources to research the various proposed plants, and made sure we were happy with the results. — N. Lovell, Rancho Palos Verdes Estates

We had seen Katrina’s work all around our neighborhood and thought she created very attractive drought-resistant designs. From our first meeting on she was completely focused our our project and worked closely with us to design the perfect front yard with native plants. All the work was finished on time and on budget. We have recommended Katrina to many friends. — D. Robbins
