About us

Flowing seamlessly from indoor to outdoor spaces, OUTDOOR ROOMS combines new landscaping with existing elements to create enchanting and revitalized gardens. Our focus is on complimentary colors and textures, contrast and drama. We create intimate environments as familiar, warm and practical as your favorite indoor spaces. We animate your OUTDOOR ROOMS to embrace pets, birds, butterflies and children. We create everything from tiny pocket gardens to genial family spaces, from curb appeal to complete garden designs.

OUTDOOR ROOMS integrates 25+ years of practice in indoor and outdoor design. Just as one must flow from room to room in interior spaces, outdoor spaces require the same movement and will be viewed from many angles.

We specialize in naturalistic design, using succulents and Mediterranean plants to emphasize low-maintenance and drought tolerance, while retaining a full and abundant palette.

“Marsha has been my go-to design person for projects large and small throughout our long and fruitful collaboration. She has chosen exterior paint colors, produced concept drawings for circular redwood decks and trellises and staged my backyard for outdoor events. Marsha’s flair for container planting — her attention to color, form and placement — is transformative.”
