Good vision that reflects sensitivity to scarce water resources and unique topography, as well as client’s objectives. Easy to work with and to communicate with her entire team. Understands budget guidelines. Dependable. We’ve always been pleased with final results. The renovation of our front courtyard exceeded our expectations, especially the creative approach to the water feature.

“ One Earth Solutions has not only designed and installed a beautiful front Zen garden for us, but Jennie and her entire staff do a marvelous job of tending to our property to make sure everything stays healthy and beautiful. We could not ask for better service or expertise.”

"One Earth Solutions created a garden with a variety of colors that are well represented at all times of the year, giving us a beautiful space to appreciate even in the dead of winter. They pay attention to detail and the health of the plants, and also advise us well as to how to continue to care and evolve what is already growing, while responding to our concerns and questions in a timely and appropriate manner. The design process took into account our needs and desires and was beautifully integrated into the surrounding natural landscape, with careful attention to water use and the overall needs of our property."

"Making a garden with Jennie, Rena and their One Earth Solutions crew of gardeners was a rare and wonderful experience. Every part of the process combined inspiration and vision with practical expertise, dedicated work, and cost-conscious planning. Seeing the garden arise from ideas and words to a design on paper and then materialize in the shaping of bare earth, the choice of plants and rocks, the building of a cascading fountain, was magical.
The vision, proposed by Jennie after a site visit and some conversation, was of a garden with the sense of a mountain retreat, a refuge in the midst of the city. The design took the form of a Japanese garden adapted to our Southwestern desert conditions, with many drought tolerant plants. From tall grasses and bamboo to a small aspen grove, with sprawling raspberries, roses, and fruit trees, the garden offered new harmony to our lives. Red and yellow twig dogwoods added accents of winter color, river cobbles brought a sense of mountain pathways, and ancient boulders added a sense of nature’s timelessness. Walking through the garden now it feels made of light as well as of the earth.
This garden also reflects the spirit of gardeners who love their work, who touch the earth with care. In the space of a typical Santa Fe back yard, they worked wonders. If Shakespeare could walk in this garden now, he’d see the stuff that dreams are made on."
