Patio Landscape Design

Green Patio, Best of Houzz 2016 Award Winner, is a landscape design company owned and operated by Lynn Saunders. Specializing in creating beautiful, sustainable and functional gardens, Lynn will provide hands-on attention to your project, from preliminary design through construction.

“Gardens for living” is how I describe my design style; we are lucky to live in a Mediterranean climate and can enjoy our garden all year long. I believe that a well designed garden will have strong architectural features combined with suitable plant material and will bring a “sense of place’ to the homeowners.
Water conservation and sustainability have always been central to my gardens. I create gardens that are appropriate for our climate – a garden which is drought tolerant and can withstand our long dry summers without looking dry, hot and desert-like and still look lush and dense.

Lynn Saunders holds an Associate Degree in Environmental Horticulture & Landscape Design, a Bachelor of Science in Business and Marketing and was a Critical Care Nurse and a Cardiology Research Coordinator. She is a past board member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers and worked for Foothill College to design a booth at the San Francisco Garden Show.

Always an enthusiastic home gardener, Lynn was asked frequently to help friends and family with their gardens. She was so passionate by the process that she left her career in medical research to study landscape design. Her enthusiasm and love of design are key to her success as a designer – she believes that the collaboration between an inspired homeowner and a professional designer ensures spectacular results!
